I'll say.  Is it the little galaxy in the middle?  Or the faint nebulosity?

It is a little galaxy in the center...

Well, at least you did not plate solve!

:grin:

@HunterHarling's would need a platesolve.

Your turn to have a guess:

Looks like NGC 1333 but the color is all wrong

colour is a tricky thing in AP, but it's not ngc 1333

Not sure why my post uploaded three times... Maybe something can delete two?

Someone who has recently imaged it would get it.

Yes

companion to M51?

No, but twice you almost had it: M109, just one number higher; M32 is just opposite from it, with Andromeda in the middle.

And now that you've guessed it, I can safely post an updated version of the image:

And what a picture it is.  I beet with allot more data the 2 galaxies will appear almost as one.  I never realized the tidal connection between the 2.

The interaction between M31 and its two satellites becomes more evident if you rotate an image of M31:

I plan on going for M31 this Summer.....I will keep the gravity tails, or bridges, in mind.

What focal length will you be using? (he asked, derailing this thread even further ?)

That's OK--pretty soon the train will be so long it will simply be a corridor to walk from coast to coast!  Anyway--if I use the FSQ 106 with .6x reducer--the only setup I have to fit M31 in the frme without resorting to a mosaic, I will be shooting at 318mm (F3).  I suppose I will be showcasing M31 in all its glory as opposed to the satellites.  I bet  if I collect allot of data, the satellites may in fact appear connected to M31--at least M110.

318 mm is a nice fl for this target (depending on sensor size, of course). Even though the galaxy is bright, it pays off to collect a lot of data, and capture the outer regions as well as the inner dust lanes.
