Description

NGC 5907 is a 10 mag. Spiral Galaxy in the constellation Draco. It lies 56 million light years from our solar system. It has a diameter of 183,000 light years.
This Galaxy reminds me of NGC 4565 The famous Needle Galaxy. The second evening of my capture of this target was plagued by many high clouds. I discarded several subs because of this. I probably should have thrown out more but I wanted to get at least 6 hours. Seeing 7/10.
