Wide-field image of the Andromeda Galaxy taken with a Canon 450D DSLR and a 50 mm f/1.8 kit lens, ISO 1600, 12 x 30 sec exposure, on November 11, 2012 under the dark clear skies of Boso-boso, Rizal, Philippines. The Andromeda Galaxy, even at a distance of 2.2 million light-years, is still visible to the naked eye and shows up well with any DSLR kit lens. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano.
