Fornax A Galaxy - September 2019

Sign in to follow this  

This is an image of NGC 1316 which is located within the Fornax Cluster, a cluster of galaxies in the constellation Fornax.

NGC 1316 is located at the edge of the Fornax Cluster and about 62 million LY away from our Solar System. NGC 1316 appears to be interacting with NGC 1317, a small spiral galaxy visible below NGC1316.

I’m happy with the amount of detail captured in this generally boring galaxy, I particularly like the "jets" streaming out of the core.

This photograph was imaged with my cooled Canon 40D DSLR and with my 8" SCT at 2032mm focal length for a total exposure time of 20 hours and 25 minutes across multiple nights.
