NGC 925 – Tri

NGC 925

NGC 925

Relatively neglected despite its beauty, NGC 925 is barred spiral galaxy, located in the Triangulum constellation, at about 31 millions of light years from us. The distance is known quite well, thanks to the Cepheids discovered in the galaxy. It was discovered by W. Herschel in 1784. Its shape is intriguingly asymmetrical.

A total of 20 exposures, with 300 seconds of integration each and taken with the Planewave 17 unit, were averaged. Images were unguided, completely trusting the Paramount ME mount. The CCD camera is a SBIG STL-6303E. The image scale is of 0.95 “/pixel.
