  1. Centaurus A or NGC 5128 is a galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus. Its a Radio galaxy around 10-16 Mly away. The image info: Telescope: ASA 12'' F3.6 Mount ASA DDM85 Camera: FLI 8300 Mono Location: Namibia Hope you like it, Thanks, Haim
  2. From the album: Deep Sky Imaging

    Centaurus A (NGC 5128) is a galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus. It was discovered in 1826 by Scottish astronomer James Dunlop from his home in Parramatta, in New South Wales, Australia. At 13 million LY, 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 image was taken with a NexStar 8SE 8" SCT at 2032mm focal length, PHD2 autoguided CGEM using a astronomy modded Canon 40D DSLR controlled by APT. It consists of 40 x 300 sec, 30 x 600 sec and 20 x 900 sec ISO800 subs.

  3. Galaxy Centaurus A ( NGC 5128 ) in the southern constellation Centaurus ( please click / tap on image to see full size ) ............ Updated again - to try to bring out more faint detail ... ............ Updated images ... ............. Originals ... ( 100% crop ) Centaurus A is relatively near to us in the local group of galaxies and is around 11 Million light years away. The unusual shape of Centaurus A is believed to be due to an ancient collision between a large elliptical galaxy and a much smaller spiral galaxy. With an apparent magnitude of +6.8, Centaurus A is the fifth brightest galaxy in the night sky and in the middle of the 20th century it was identified as being the strongest radio source in the Centaurus constellation.

  4. Hi all, I had a bit of luck with weather so after the little one is asleep, I was able to sneak a few imaging nights. The great thing about permanent setups is that from night to night, imaging can be resumed within minutes with saved than recalled coordinates. Centaurus A (NGC 5128) is a galaxy in the constellation of Centaurus. At 13 million LY, 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.
