      Description

      As a guest of Vienna's amateur astronomers south observatory at Hakos, I was using a 8" f/4 newtonian on this splendid galaxy. Can be seen from mid-northern latitudes, but certainly its better to have it at Zenith :-)

      LRGB using ASI1600 at zero gain and Astronomik Deepsky RGB filters.
