AN INCREDIBLE photo of the Andromeda Galaxy has been captured by a talented photographer in Somerset.

The photo was captured by reader Mike Jefferies in Glastonbury on the night of Sunday October 8.

Although 2.537 million light years away, Mike managed to capture the barred spiral galaxy in all its glory from the depths of Somerset.

The ten-billion-year-old galaxy is said to contain over one trillion stars.

Mike managed to capture the shot by stacking 80 photos using software called Deep Sky Stacker.

He then used Adobe Lightroom to enhance the final product showing the Milky Way's nearest major galaxy, with a radius spanning a mind-blowing 110,000 light years.
