NGC1365 is a barred spiral galaxy in the constellation Fornax, approximately 56 million light-years away. This is a four hour, 20 minute exposure captured last night here at ASIGN Observatory.

The blue regions in the spiral arms indicate a strong density wave of hot, active star-growth and a fast rotation.

Calibrated with 10 x 20 minute darks, 10 x 0.04 Sec Flats and 0.04 sec Flat Darks.

It's times like these pretty little galaxies that I wish I had a bigger aperture and a longer focal length!
