M31 - The Andromeda Galasy


Tri-color on Technical Pan film - 8" f/4.5 Newtonian telescope

- The Andromeda Galaxy is like an "island in space" made of more than a hundred billion stars. Lying 2 1/2 million light years away, it's the closest large companion to our own Milky Way galaxy.

The older, cooler stars in the central core of the galaxy emit a more yellow-orange color. The hotter and brighter stars in the outer arms are blue and white. Many large regions of nebulosity can also be seen as pink or red regions.
