    That's pretty cool. You can even see the dust rings in M31. Did you know that M31 is a "ringed" galaxy? In fact, it has two rings, an inner and outer ring, which coincide with two of the five Lindblad resonance radii. If I recall my de Vaucouleurs revision of the Hubble system of galaxy classification correctly, M31 is classified as follows:

    (R)SA(r)b

    But, don't hold me to that. It's been awhile since I've done galaxy classification using the de Vaucouleurs system.
