Pinnacles National Park is a Bortle Class 3 site for night sky's brightness. It was good night with no cloud and smoke. Moon set by 8pm. I was taking MilkyWay pix. I happened to see Cassiopeia constellation and took several pictures. In all of them I saw this little smudge... But it had the tell-tale signs of a galaxy. I went home and checked it was indeed Andromeda.
