The Antennae Galaxies ( NGC 4038/NGC 4039) are a pair of interacting galaxies in the constellation Corvus. They are currently going through a starburst phase, in which the collision of clouds of gas and dust, with entangled magnetic fields, causes rapid star formation.

Imaged using a 8" SCT (at the native 2032mm focal length), with a QHY268M camera.

The total exposure time of this image for all of the LRGB filters  was 5 hours and 9 minutes.
Exposures: L:15x600s @ FW:31, R:17x120s G:15x180s B:16x300s @ HCG:62/OFS:25
