Just stepping into this field. For the users to get the grasp of the size and scale of the objects populating our night (and day) skies, I take attention to keep the same scale (a field of view of about 41.2x27.5 arcminutes) and start by introducing the most familiar objects.
Andromeda Galaxy as seen through a 80mm refractor telescope using a DSLR camera and about 1 hour of exposure time. Andromeda Galaxy is a spiral galaxy in our local galaxy group. It lies in the constellation of Andromeda and is among the largest deep sky object in aparent size on our skies (several times greater than the moon).
