NGC488 - an unusual galaxy

Recommended Posts

In Pisces, mag 10.4 and quite small at 5.4'x3.9' Very tightly wound spiral arms.  I'd seen an image by Adam Block, which as usual is excellent, and prompted me to have a go.  http://www.caelumobservatory.com/gallery/n488.shtml  But relatively low from NE England and proved difficult in mediocre seeing to tease out detail.  Anyway, QSI 683wsg on RC10 with SX AO unit.  Luminance 12 x 10 minutes, RGB each 4 x 10 minutes all binned 2x2.  Lots of distant background galaxies.

What makes this image even more impressive is the amount of faint fuzzies in the background. Good work mate
