UGC 12632 (PGC 71596 and others) is a faint galaxy located approximately 31.8 million light-years away in Andromeda.

I imaged this one because Gregg Ruppel recently posted an image of the same area - from New Mexico. It looked like there was a lot of dust in the area. The thickest clouds are cataloged in the Planck Galactic Cold Clump (PGCC) catalog -

Luminance – 12x600s – 120 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

240 minutes total exposure – 4 hours

Imaged on November 4th, 2021 at the Danville Conservation Area (New Florence, Missouri) with a SBIG ST-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT90EDT at f/6.7 603mm.
