Here is a unique and very deep view of this famous galaxy in
Centaurus.

Taken over 3 nights from a very dark sky in Australia this may even
be the deepest colour image ever taken of this famous galaxy..?

The following link is to a 1400 X 900 image that will fit on most
screens without the need for scrolling but please access a larger
file and several other versions of this extensive data set via the
links below the image (don't click on the image)

I strongly recomend looking at the 4008 X 2670pix 4.5meg version and
see how many galaxies you can count in the background.

The close up of the dust lane is pretty cool too I recon.

A real pleasure to process into so many variations, I hope you like
it

Beautifully done Mike. This is one of my favorite objects. Wish we had access to it up here in the northlands. Great job with CG4 as well!
