Galaxy NGC253 and globular cluster NGC288

Hakos, Namibia

The famous galaxy NGC 253 is seen here with the nearby globular cluster NGC 288. Two satellit tracks through the frame. This shot was taken with an SBIG STL11000 and a Takahashi FSQ106ED 530mm/f5 without any converter. RGB filters were used from Astronomik. Exposure times were 3x5 mins with each filter. Additive exposure time is therefore 45 mins .
