I know another M-31 shot,Yes but the surprise to me was I
caught Comet 2P/Encke also.
The only other reason for posting this I have yet to see
anyone else post one of the comet.
The photo was taken on 10-17-03 with a AP155mm scope,
field flattern and reducer,Pentax 6X7 camera,with
Fuji NPH 400 film and a 45 minute exposure.
This is a low resolution scan with no processing
done to it,just a raw scan

After comparing your image to a chart of the same image scale and orientaion I think Christopher is right.

When Roland comes back from vacation you'll have to give him a call and find out why you have the blue halo around the star, something must be out of whack.
