The Andromeda Galaxy and its companions, the elliptical galaxies M32 and M110, are portrayed in this 5 minute long exposure that I took on 2005/9/5 at Cherry Springs Park in Potter County, Pennsylvania.  I used my Canon EOS Digital Rebel DSLR camera and a borrowed 135mm f/2 Canon EF lens set at f/3.2 to take the picture.
