NGC1300 - An face-on barred spiral galaxy in Eridanus.
A stack of 12 eight minute exposures using a Vixen R200SS 8" f/4 Newtonian with a Paracorr coma corrector,
shooting right through the light dome over NY City. The object was less than 30 degrees off the horizon.
The individual exposures were calibrated, defect-corrected and stacked using AIP4WIN V2.
