After blinding everyone with the moon I got some helping hands and moved the telescope to the opposite side of the house, facing north east. Here I took a few minutes to find the Andromeda Galaxy. My audience was made up of some smart folk, and even though the galaxy appeared as a faint white fuzzy, the fact that it was another galaxy was not lost on them.

My first view of Andromeda this year.
