    Default NGC4365 Region and Friends



    Here is an image of the Elliptical Galaxy NGC 4365 and its nearby field. There is quite a lot involved here - apparently the field is well studied. There are 16 NGC/IC objects with NGC 4365 being most visually dominant. It is also the most massive of those galaxies in this field under 90 million light years distance. In addition, there are 19 galaxy groups - the largest visually includes NGC 4365 and four others (NGC4342, NGC 4343, NGC 4370, UGC 7513).

    During my imaging session, the field was visited by the minor planet 535 Montague. Normally, asteroids get processed out via pixel rejection in the stacking, but the sub-exposures showed the movement quite strikingly. So I went ahead to process the movement into the Luminance stack (as a streak in the main image). I also did a small GIF of the Luminance frames exposure sequence. This can be accessed in the link below.

    Image and details can be accessed from the link below. For convenience, I also provide a link to the annotated image (which can also be accessed from the main image page). The annotation for this image was a bit challenging because I had to make choices on what to leave out since the field would have been overly busy.

    Absolutely beautiful image Jim!

    I would like an image like yours to be printer wall sized.

    Thanks,

    Jim, Rhoda,
    Thanks for the comments. A huge printed picture would be fun, but gee, I'd rather spend the money on gear.

    Nope, don't mind at all. I have always had a pretty public presence on the various forums.
