He used the type of lens typically used to make portraits, along with a 6.5" telescope, to create this image. N.B.: This is now known as the Andromeda Galaxy. Astronomers were not yet certain that nebulae and galaxies are different kinds of celestial bodies. See introductory note for more information.2016-05-11T22:14:56-07:001894Lick ObservatoryE.E.
