Description

NGC 613 is a 9th Magnitude spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. It's only 28º above the horizon when it transits in the south. This is a pretty tough object to shoot through the light pollution in Tucson, and it's also pretty small, only about 5.5 arcminutes at its widest.

Although I had "an incident" with my flats, I was able to crop most of the problem areas out of the photo anyway, so I just went with what I had.
