At the recent Cherry Springs Star Party in late June, a videographer attended who was working on a piece about stargazing.  Seeing that I did astrophotography, he talked to me a little bit and asked for any images I did. I sent him a relatively brief M31 which he kindly included.

 

The video's just been published and you can view it here:

I think it's exceptionally well-done.

Great video. Thanks for sharing it.
If more people have a chance to see this, they might think about this hobby.
Wouldn't that be nice?
The world will be a better place.

Great video! That young man gets it...while so many others don't.  Too bad for them.

Nice little video! I met that kid and his dad as we were camped next to each other at last years black Forrest star party. I love his enthusiasm!
