My backyard field of view is roughly 100x100* due to trees, etc. After 6 months, I have finally gotten a few decent views(very humid yet), and am so thrilled. I love the idea of looking at another galaxy, but Andromeda kicks the heck out of some of the Messier galaxies, resembling a bright globular cluster. Another galaxy. Think about it.

Last night was a great night, wasn't it? First clear night us Floridan's got to enjoy in months. M31 was at its best at around 2:00am. :)

I hadn't thought of it ever. Thanks for the instruction.
