Quote We went out for some astrophotography straight after work for this night even though the weather looked terrible. It was very cloudy and windy (about 10m/s winds!) the whole night, but we managed to get some shots thru the clouds anyway! This shot of NGC891 is one of the best from this night because it's a really nice edge-on galaxy. Quote

FactsA galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system consisting of stars, stellar remnants, an interstellar medium of gas and dust, and dark matter. Examples of galaxies range from dwarfs with as few as ten million stars to giants with one hundred trillion stars, each orbiting their galaxy's own center of mass.Factssource and more information wikipedia
