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.
