Description:

The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M31 from Messier's Catalog, appears as a faint smudge of light to the unaided eye from a dark location. Set against the stars of Andromeda, M31 is best viewed during the fall and winter months in the northern hemisphere. Long exposure images, properly processed, bring out a wealth of detail, including star forming regions, in addition to dark bands of dust superimposed on the galaxy's bright core.
