Description

NGC7640 is a nearby Galaxy in Andromeda, not far from the famous "blue snowball" planetary. Its brightness 11mag and size 12x2' should make it more popular, but it is little known - maybe due to the near great Andromeda galaxy. I saw it first visually in my 10" Newton and decided it is definitely worth a photo. Type is SBc, seen almost from the edge, and distance is 26x10^6 lightyears.
