Is this for real? Fantastic. How many miles (or light years) away is it? Great shot Smile

Thnx for the nice comments, though there are many better versions done by hugely skilled imagers especially on the astro forums. Im still very much a beginner!

Apparently, the galaxy is roughly somewhere between 15 and 30 million light years away. Quite a long ufo journey!

The 300D was attached directly to my 200mm (8") reflector at prime focus and approx ninety x 60 second exposures were stacked with dark frames.

I'm soon going to be getting a NIKON D3100 in the post - Smile for resuming 'normal' photography since my canon was modified (IR filter removed) so cant wait to learn a few techniques!


Cheers,


Aenima
