NGC 6744

Recommended Posts

The southern galaxy NGC6744 lies about 30Mly away in Pavo.

It is thought to be quite similar to our Milky Way, but is around twice the diameter at 200kly. It also has an associated dwarf not unlike the Magellanic Clouds.

This LRGB image was shot over 3 nights using a custom Officina RiDK 300, Moravian G4-9000, and DDM85A. Processed in Pixinsight and Photoshop.
