M31 - Andromeda Galaxy


M31, along with its satellite galaxies M32 and M110, is one of our intergalactic neighbors, "only" 2.7 million light years away. This image was taken at GMARS in August 2008 through a WO 80mm FD with an SBIG ST2000XCM. Captured in Equinox Image and processed entirely on a Macintosh in Nebulosity 2.0, Photoshop CS3 and Leopard Preview.
