Image recorded as 16x300second images.  Individual images were calibrated using master bias, dark and flat frames.

The images were calibrated, stacked and processed using PixInsight application only.

The faint outer structure of this galaxy requires much longer image exposure.  However, the brighter core of the galaxy has exposed very well in the image.  A smaller companion galaxy is also visible in the image.
