Description

A little faint galaxy for my telescope, but never the less an object worth to be a part of my collection of galaxies.

It reminds me of a viking ship, I think because I recently read about vikings burial ceremonies, tombs and runes. The stone ship graves were used for burial of high status persons and viking worriors.

The night I collected the subs the snow on the ground amplified the strong light pollution around my house and it have been difficult to remove the reddish tone from the final image.

I also experienced some horizontal banding that did not appeared since long time . Canon banding removal script did remove them only partially. Hm this astro-season has been very challenging with lots of problems with gears and more.... one more month and the astro-season is over and the gear will rest until the end of august.

CS to you all! :-)
