Can you identify this deep sky object?

Recommended Posts

Hello dear community members, 

I was in the French Alps, Jan2, 00:14CET, 23:14GMT, looking North West, from position 44.541N, 6.702E

I was kicking the tires on my new Canon G5X Mark II, taking shots at the Milky Way.  

I couldn't help noticing an object that looks like a star, with 2 jets of gas coming from opposite directions. 

I'm a novice on this field, any help identifying this object would be appreciated

Regarding my camera setting, for those who may be interested, I ran a series of shots and came up with this optimal setting:
ISO 1000
Speed: 25 seconds
F/1.8
Focal lenght: 9mm
Resolution: 4864X3648 pixels

I agree - Messier 31. I think you have also got the fainter Messier 33 as well - I've marked it in this copy of your image:

Fractionally right of centre at the top is the double cluster as well, I think.
