M31 South­w­est Part (NGC 206) in Andromeda

The Great Andromeda Galaxy (M31) is the nearest spir­al galaxy and there­fore one of the most fam­ous object in the night sky. Using a long focal length tele­scope offers a unique view on the galaxy by resolv­ing indi­vidu­al stars, emis­sion regions and star clusters. Some of the more prom­in­ent com­pact star clusters can be seen and can be found in an annot­ated ver­sion.
