NGC 4038 or better known as The Antennea or Ring-Tail Galaxys.
Also when you photography this field you get an extra treat
NGC 4027.
This photo was taken with an: AP 155mm refactor using a field
flatteren with a Pentax 6X7 camera on Fuji Provia 400 film.
Exposure time was 45 minutes. The film was scaned with a Espon
3200 scanner at 3200 dpi then reduced in Photo Shop to 200 dpi
for posting. This is a raw image scan,nothing has been done to it except reduce it size.
My location is 42 degrees North so this is some what low in the Southern Sky,with some light pollution.
The seening on the night this was taken was about 7.5 to 8
on a scale of 1-10 with 10 beening perfect.
Comments welcome.
