Messier Catalog » M31 — NGC 224 Andromeda Galaxy
An interim stack of multiple sessions for a 2022 project to achieve as detailed an M31 as possible.
A first look at the Andromeda Galaxy as it reappears in the fall of 2022. Captured unguided on the Sky Watcher Star Adventurer Mini (SAM).
The Andromeda Galaxy occupies a large field of view. It is both near to the Milky Way and bright enough to see with the naked eye.
Over 2,000 10-second exposures went into stacking 6 panels that were blended to produce this capture of Andromeda with neighboring galaxies M32 and M110.
