C65-Sculptor Galaxy on 11/25/08

Here’s the Sculptor Galaxy image I was working on this evening – over an hour of image data on this wonderful object found in the constellation Sculptor. It’s really one of my favorite targets for my camera. Through the eyepiece, it’s easily visible as a cigar-shaped smudge, but I can’t make out much, if any, detail.

I’m now working on an image of Merope one of the stars of the Pleiades which has a wonderful nebula around it. I’ll post that next.
