Description

This image is the sum of 430 60 secs unguided subs taken on the 17th of April from my home terrace. Imaging train was:

Newton Orion USA 250 F 3.9 + qhy183m + Baader Coma Corrector + Idas LPS2 on top of an Ioptron CEM60EC. Aquisition and some processing with Astroart - remaining processing with PS.

NGC 4216 is a metal-rich intermediate spiral galaxy located not far from the center of the Virgo Cluster of galaxies, roughly 55 million light-years away. It is seen nearly edge-on. (wikipedia) The other two galaxies in the image are NGC 4206 (bottom left) and NGC 4222 (upper right).

Thanks for looking
