Galaxy NGC7479
Description: The NGC 7479 galaxy, also known as Caldwell 44, is a barred spiral galaxy located at a distance of 105 million light-years from the Milky Way. Two main arms can be seen at both sides of the central bar. It is important to mention that all the stars in the image belong to our own galaxy, while in the image many other distant galaxies can be also seen. This image was taken using the Wide Field Camera at the 2.54m Isaac Newton Telescope 2.54m. For making this image, the H-beta, Oxygen-III and H-Alpha filters were used, using exposure times between 300 and 720'. Image processed by Abel de Burgos. Credit: INT Support Astronomers.
