NGC4725 Galaxy

A lovely clear night last night very enjoyable sitting out under the stars imaging this Galaxy. The image is made up of 45 3min subs at an ISO of 400. Guided with PHD and Eqmod with 40 darks flats and bias shots to stack with in deep sky stacker. Final processing in Photoshop

NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a super-massive black hole
