Sculptor_Galaxy.jpg
Sculptor Galaxy1209 viewsThe Great Sculptor Galaxy (NGC 253), aka the Silver Coin, in the constellation Sculptor was discovered in 1783 by Caroline Herschel. The galaxy is at a distance of 9.8 million light years away from us. Research on NGC 253 indicates that it is a starburst galaxy, which means that it has recently hosted massive and rapid burts of star formation. The image is a total of 1 hr 50 min (22 X 300 seconds) exposure with a Takahashi E-180 astrograph and Canon 20Da DSLR camera.
