Description

It’s been sometime since I’ve captured a galaxy with my telescope. The above galaxy is called the Triangulum Galaxy, a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. It is the third largest member of the local group after the Milky Way and Andromeda. It is the most distant object in the night sky that can be sometimes seen with the naked eye.
