NGC 7331

Located at about 40 millions of light years, NGC 7331 is a beautiful, almost edge-on spiral galaxy, in Pegasus. It is the largest member of the so-called Deer Lick Group. It was discovered in 1784 by W. Herschel.

Here, it was imaged with the Planewave 17 unit, part of the Virtual Telescope Project. A total of 24 exposures, with 5 minutes of integration each, were averaged. Images were unguided, completely trusting the Paramount ME mount. The CCD camera is a SBIG STL-6303E. The image scale is of 0.84 “/pixel.
