Andromeda - A Journey Back in Time!

It all started back in 2020, when i came to know about this object and was struck by its sheer beauty. It was this object that made me start astrophotography and had me searching and trying to capture just a glimpse of it.
With each capture my love and desire intensified to witness its true colors. It's mind blowing how it's like traveling back in time just by looking at it.
2.5 million light years away from us having a trillion stars within that tiny spot in the whole sky and the brightest external galaxy visible to us. My all time favourite object of the night sky and truly humbled to have captured it's real beauty.

Behold the queen of the deep sky, The Andromeda Galaxy.
