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. This image has been cropped down from its original size.
