Andromeda is my favorite object to show people in my telescope.

I'm with ya. I'm going for the deep stuff this winter. Using a 12" RC with a ZWO ASI 1600MM-C camera with a 2x extender added in the imaging train. On my scope it gives me a focal length of4680mm and a focal ratio of f15.6.

Nice. There's another more distant galaxy near the top of the photo.

That’s right. In fact there are several galaxies in the photo. Just look for the little blobs.

Beautiful, and fascinating.

And think, it's only 2.939 × 10(to the 20th) miles from Earth.
