M31 | The Andromeda Galaxy
The Andromeda Galaxy is our galactic neighbor, a mere 2.5 million lightyears away. It’s the most distant light we can see with the naked eye.
M33 | Triangulum Galaxy
Triangulum Galaxy is a member of the local group of galaxies. It has an abundance of star-forming regions seen as red knots in this picture.
M45 | The Pleiades
The Pleiades aka Seven Sisters is an open star cluster illuminating the surrounding dust. Spikes seen on the brighter stars are caused by optical diffraction in the telescope.
