Description

I am going through the (galactic) neighbourhood at the moment. The big neighbour M31 with the small satellite galaxies M32 and M110 is a must.
By enhancing the faint halo of stars around Andromeda the galaxy looks quite big. While M110 (NGC 205) seems to stand alone in other pictures. Here, it is joined to Andromeda by the halo.
