Messier 31 is one of the most popular objects, especially among beginning astro-amateurs. In the internet there is so many photos of this galaxy. At the beginning of August 2021 I made two astronomical sketches of this object at AstroLife’s request.
First sketch shows M31 seen through 10×50 binoculars (which means the magnification here is 10 times and aperture of one objective lens is 50 mm), while the second one depicts it through 25×100 binoculars (so magnification is 25 times and aperture – 100 mm). But Messier 31 isn’t the only one object here. In both sketches you can see two more galaxies – Messier 32 and Messier 110. The first one is similar to a star, but a bit more blurred, and lies to the right and below M31. The second one is a bit broader, fainter and is located farther from M31 than M32. You can find it above M31 (in the second sketch it’s closer to the diaphragm).
