Andromeda Galaxy (M31)

Yep, that smudge….that’s the Andromeda Galaxy as seen through a 6″ Newtonian reflector telescope.  I must say it does look rather unimpressive in this image.  But to actually locate and observe this distant world through the lens of your very own scope, in real life, is absolutely breathtaking.  One day I’ll own a proper astrophotography camera and inspire awe, but this will have to do for now.
