Pointing Out Cassiopeia

Another experimental shot.

This is five exposures, 10 seconds each at ISO1600, with my laser pointer, hand-held, pointing out each of the main stars in the Cassiopeia constellation. Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker. Light pollution aplenty!

Next time, I'll rig up a mount for the laser to keep it more steady during the exposures. A fun experiment, though.

Can you see M31 and the Double Cluster in there?
