A binocular view of the Andromeda Nebula, Messier 31, a spiral
galaxy two million
light years away, reveals a tilted disk. It is the most distant object you can
see with the naked eye. Two "elliptical" galaxies hover near M 31. M 32
is the bright dot immediately below the nucleus of M 31, while NGC 205
(sometimes called M 110) appears as a slightly fuzzy patch up and to the
right of M 31.
The bright star to the left of M 31 is Nu Andromedae.
