Description
Galaxy NGC 925 in Triangulum 45x180sec at iso 1600 30 Darks/Flats/Bias This object is about the limit of the 350D's ability to gather photons. Much lower surface brightness than I expected. Still, this image compares favorably with images from larger scopes and CCD cameras. NGC 925 is nearly face-on with us. A spiral galaxy in the constellation Triangulum, this galaxy is part of the Hubble Space Telescope Key Project on the Extragalactic Distance Scale, which was designed to determine the Hubble Constant within +/-10% using Cepheid Variables.
