NGC7331

The galaxy NGC7331 is located in Pegasus and is approximately 46 million light years distant. It's estimated to be be substantially larger than our own Milky Way with a transverse diameter of 140 000 light years.   Some background galaxies can also be seen in the image (below), which are estimated to be c300 million light years distant  Due to its high inclination of 77 degrees, part of the disc is blocked by dust lanes, although I was quite pleased with the amount of detail captured. :)

The LRGB image represents 11.5 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150.
