The Needle galaxy

By Aenima
A galaxy seen edge on, with dark streak of dust lanes seen as a line down the center.

This is a nice example of an edge on spiral and in the image if you look carefully are small (very small) galaxies - one in the bottom left corner - which are galaxies but far far more distant.

200P / EQ5 / 300D

I am so envious of your ability to capture this sort of cosmological image, and having enlarged the image on my screen +++ I did manage to spot the other galaxy bottom left.
