Andromeda Galaxy (Messier 31)

Andromeda is the nearest galaxy to the Milky Way with less than 2.5 million light-years distance. Because of its enormous dimensions, I could not take a photo of its entire disk by my telescope, so I used the panorama technique to achieve this objective. The photo consists of 3 separate parts and two other dwarf galaxies (M32 and M110) can be seen near the Andromeda.

Telescope: GSO Newtonian
F: f/4
