Quote This is our first picture of a galaxy. When taking this picture we were in a hurry finishing it because Jakob had to study for an exam he had the day after. Even though the exposure time was extremely short we managed to get the spiral arms of the galaxy on the picture. If we get this amount of detail with this short exposure we can only think of how nice it will look in the future. Quote
