Description

This beauty is located about 55 million light years from us, in the constellation Horologium, located in the southern hemisphere. In the field there are a ton of smaller Galaxies, and what appears to me, to be a Galaxy cluster (lower right side of the image).

The system used to take this was an Officina Stellare RiDK400 with a FLI PL16803 camera, in the Atacama Desert at the El Sauce hosting facility. The data was provided to me by Mike Selby whom is the owner and operator of the system at El Sauce.

L - 600s x 81 bin 1x1 -31C
