And Andromeda sweeps from right to left. The bright star at upper right is Alpheratz, Alpha Andromedae, which is also the northeastern star of the Great Square of Pegasus. Almach, Gamma Andromedae is toward lower left, while Mirach (Beta Andromedae) is just below center. Delta is just below a line between Alpheratz and Mirach. Pi is up and to the left of Delta, Epsilon down and to the right. The star near the lower edge at left is in Triangulum. The Andromeda Nebula, M 31, is the fuzzy object toward top center. Nu Andromedae is just down and to the left of it. Epsilon is the lower right of the trio down and to the left of Alpheratz. Phi And is the brighter star immediately to the left of M 31. Lambda Andromedae is off the picture to the upper right, but appears on the deep image.
