The Andromeda Galaxy
October 8, 2016
Haven’t imaged Andromeda in a while so decided to give it a go. It’s alright, not my favorite and (as usual) needs more time.
The Andromeda Galaxy (M 31) is one of our nearest neighbors, and the most distant object visible to the naked eye at around 2.54 million light years. The small satellite galaxy below M 31 is M 110, and the even smaller satellite above the galaxy (which astronomers suspect may have collided with it’s host) is M 32.
