A barred spiral galaxy, about 10 million light years away, in the constellation of the Sculptor. The apparent magnitude of 7.3 allowed a richly detailed RGB capture even in an urban sky with high light pollution. Despite the growth of large cities, we will not give up registering the beauties of the night sky.
L 80x120s + RGB 20x120s.
Equipment: C11" Edge HD (f/7 Astrophysics CCDT67) + ASI1600mm-c
