Description

This was not an intended target. I just pointed at it for a bit while I did other things. There is only a total of 20 minutes exposure. Even so, you can almost make out the concentric rings of this interesting galaxy. I would love to be able to come back to it someday and see how it looks after 10 hours exposure.
