NGC 891 in Andromeda is one of the most photogenic edge-on spirals around and about 30 million light years away.
I find it fascinating finding out what sort of planet Earth was when
the light left these objects we view, so here's a brief synopsis.
I was amazed how many galaxies are in the background in this shot
full of them, individually and in clusters.

This image is was the first successful image done using my dual scope imaging rig, and I'm pleased with the way it's come together. Over 10 hours of data gathered in a little over 5 hours. Very handy in our climate!
I used my TMB 152 @ F8 and SXVF-H16 camera to capture the luminance,
and my William Optics ZS80FD and Atik 16HR for the RGB.
Luminance 31 x 10 minutes
Total imaging time. 10 hrs 21 minutes.
