Let’s Set a Course for the Andromeda Galaxy

We’re going to travel 2.5 Million Light Years to one of our closest galactic neighbors, the beautiful Andromeda Galaxy! Visible with the naked eye from dark sites, the core comes alive with a pair of binoculars and a telescope. This image I took consists of two hours worth of data and reveals the spiral arms extending from the dense bright core! Have you been out to see or image Andromeda lately?
