The galaxy NGC4216 is in the Virgo Cluster about 55 million light years from Earth.  It is shown in the center of the LRGB image below with two main companions NGC4206 (top) and NGC4222 (bottom). Also displayed are a few background galaxies. 

The inclination of NGC4216 is 89 degrees so, it is almost edge on, making the revelation of dust lanes difficult, so I was quite pleased that I managed to capture a few details.

The image represents 12.5 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150.
