Centaurus A (NGC 5128) Galaxy - 11 April 2022


Centaurus A (NGC 5128) is a galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus 13 million lightyears away. NGC 5128 is one of the closest radio galaxies to Earth and is also the fifth-brightest in the sky, making it an ideal amateur astronomy target.
The galaxy is only visible from below very low northern latitudes but is best seen or imaged from the southern hemisphere.

This photo was imaged using a Celestron C8 and a QHY268M at the native 2032mm focal length.
This object was exposed for 3 hours and 56 minutes, 16x600sec luminance subs through a UV/IR rejection filter and 6x120s red, 8x180s green and 8x300s blue filters.
