Last night I did a few shots of the Sadr region and the Andromeda galaxy from my balcony using my new vintage lens, SMC/Super Takumar 200mm F/4. As my balcony is directed to the South and I cannot see the North Star (Polaris) from there, I had to polar align my mount using the drift align method and reduce the exposure time to 120 seconds for Sadr and 60 seconds for Andromeda on 200mm focal length. I have no idea how the final pictures will look like because I will process them while writing this post. So, if you are interested in how my astrophotography post-processing on macOS looks like these days (2018), read on! Plus, it is the first field test of my new astrophotography gear, the SMC/Super Takumar 200mm F/4.
