NGC 4565

NGC 4565 (scaled down) Many faint galaxies can be seen in background.
This beautiful edge-on galaxy, in constellation Coma Berenices, has a unbarred spiral structure.

Transparency was poor, but seeing better than usually in my location.
Result from that, is tighter stars and some details can be seen in the galaxy disc.

Mahtavia kuvia. Ymmärrän nyt miten tämä voi "viedä mukanaan". Katsopa muuten blogejani ja, ne ovat osittain samoista, mutta suurimmaksi osaksi eri aiheista - toinen suomeksi, toinen englanniksi. Ollaan yhteyksissä; lähdetään vaikka oluelle joku päivä viikonloppuna.
