NGC 7479

NGC 7479 

 

NGC 7479 (also known as Caldwell 44) is a barred spiral galaxy about 105 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus. It is also recognized as a Seyfert galaxy and a LINER undergoing starburst activity not only on the nucleus and the outer arms, but also across the bar of the galaxy, where most of the stars were formed in the last 100 million years. (wikipedia)
With angular diameter of about 3 it is not an easy object for photography, namely with relatively small scope. In addition I had some unexpected problem witn L-channel and so this picture is not yet optimal (but existing..)
