NGC 925 – A Spiral Galaxy in Triangulum

This is a tough galaxy to shoot. There is not a lot of light coming from this dim galaxy and therefore, it does not look as pretty. NGC 925 is a barred and somewhat distorted spiral galaxy located about 30 million light-years away in the constellation Triangulum. NGC 925 has at least 132 cataloged HII regions. Some of these red-pink areas are visible in the image.

Took this image over 11 hours. (Luminances 10 images of 30 minutes each and RGB color data of 6 images each of 20 minutes each).
