    Default Hi, and is one of the objects in this picture the Andromeda Galaxy?



    Hi! I’m Wispy!

    I just wanted to ask a question; are any of the objects in the following picture the Andromeda galaxy?
    The star in the top left corner is Mirach, I think...
    IMG_1546.JPEG

    P.S I’m doing this on an iPad, so I’m not sure if the photo came out ;\

    Thanks!

    Hello Wispy and welcome to the forum!

    We are unable to upload attachments to threads or posts at the present time, but if you can provide a link to the image on a dropbox, cloud drive, or other hosting services we'll be happy to take a look.

    Could I upload the image to a random wiki (probably an astronomy wiki), and send a link to the image itself? Thats the only way I know how to upload images to the internet. But it’s ok if that’s not allowed, I’d just have to deal with it.

    So along with the inability to upload attachments, using quotes and apostrophes and some other special characters with a mobile device causes the issue you are seeing. The forum software was upgraded a couple of months ago and these little quirks and bugs have yet to be worked out. These are fixable, but the admin had yet to make the time to get them corrected.

    www.dropbox.com. Kind of a cloud storage/file sharing type of thing. Comes in handy on occasion.

    "Post stuffing" is rather frowned upon.
