NGC 4945

NGC 4945 in Centaurus 
Beautiful and relatively large edge-on spiral galaxy.
Distance from Earth, about 12 million light years.

My second light for the Northern Galactic groups members telescope under the Australian dark skies.
This galaxy is not imaged too commonly, due the proximity of famous targets, Centaurus A and M86.

Ones again, this is a preview image, since I don't have yet all the calibration files.

Camera, Apogee U9000
Exposures, 24x300s for the Luminance and 4x300s for each RGB channel.
Darks, NO Flats.
