 NGC 507  galaxy group



NGC 507, also (with NGC 508) Arp 229,  is a (rather distant, ~ 230 MLY) lenticular galaxy in the constellation Pisces, placed exactly between M33 (Triangulum Galaxy) and Mirach (beta Andromeda). It is also a central member of the interesting galaxy group with number of smaller mainly spiral galaxies.
For the processing I used (only, it is not an easy object)  4 hours of data but the result is, I believe, rather satisfactory. Recently I started to use the Russel Croman's Blur- and Noise-XTerminator plugins and I like it very much.. it makes my processing much faster and the output is also clearly better.
