In this eastern portion of Andromeda,
the bright star Mirach (Beta Andromedae) appears down and to the left of the
great Andromeda galaxy, M 31, while Almach (Gamma) is toward the far left.
Lambda And is the brightest star toward the upper right corner; Psi And is just
to the left of it.
M 32 lies just down and to the left
of M 31; the galaxy NGC 205 is just up and to the right. Triangulum
is near the lower left corner, its galaxy M 33 just visible. The
highest resolution image (see below) records stars to tenth magnitude.
The faint-star limit drops toward the edges of the picture because
of vignetting in the camera, rendering M 33 anomalously dim.
