Description

NGC 210 in Cetus is a spiral galaxy, located about 67,000,000 light-years away. Discovered in 1785 by William Herschel, NGC 210 is an SAB(s)b galaxy. Its unusual arms lead researchers to believe that NGC 210 will morph into a ring galaxy. Its nucleus appears to be lenticular with a prominent dust lane. Count the many distant galaxies in the field of view! Many thanks go out to my collaborator and friend, Mike Selby, who acquired and calibrated this fine data.
