The Triangulum Galaxy (sometimes referred to as Pinwheel Galaxy) is the most distant object that can be seen with the unaided eye, approximately 3 million light-years from Earth. This wide-field image of the Triangulum Galaxy was taken with a Canon 450D DSLR and a 50 mm f/1.8 kit lens, ISO 1600, 30 sec exposure, on November 11, 2012 under the dark clear skies of Boso-boso, Rizal, Philippines. The low surface brightness of Triangulum Galaxy makes it an extremely difficult target to observe visually in light-polluted skies. Photo Credit: Anthony Urbano.

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.
