Description

Slightly out of focus, acquisition interrupted, computer ran out of battery, but this final black and white image came out rather surreal.

Because of the interruption, do not know how many subs, but they were 5 seconds each. Probably less than 200.

Look forward to going after this galaxy again, in hopes of bringing out the details in the disk..
