The edge-on galaxy NGC 891 in Andromeda
The edge-on galaxy NGC 891 is found in the constellation Andromeda. NGC 891 is approximately 30 million light-years away and is similar in size to our own Milky Way galaxy. A prominent dust lane is seen in the plane of the galaxy with tendrils of dust seen above and below that plain. These dust tendrils may be due in part to supernova explosions. The image is a total of 11 hours of exposure through a 12.5 inch f/9 RCOS astrograph with a SBIG STF8300c CCD camera on a Paramount ME taken in Mayhill, NM on the nights of 13, 14 Oct 2016; 16 Nov 2017; 13, 15 Dec 2017, and 13, 19 Jan 2018 (33 X 1200 sec lights @ -15 degrees C; 18 darks, 128 bias; 128 flats). Processed in PixInsight Ripley (X64).
