Andromeda galaxy with Scale of Light Years

A true-color B+I composite mosaic image of the Andromeda spiral galaxy obtained by Raja Guhathakurta, Phil Choi (both UCSC), Somak Raychaudhury (IUCAA), and Andreas Berlind (OSU) with the KPNO Burrell Schmidt telescope. This image consists of about 60 overlapping large format CCD images that were carefully combined to obtain an image of the largest spiral galaxy in the Local Group.

Two new dwarf spheroidal companion galaxies of the Andromeda Galaxy have recently been discovered, analyzed and characterized.
