Spiral Galaxy IC 4248

April 28, 2005
Somewhat further out in space, and right on the border between the southern constellations Hydra and Centaurus lies this knotty spiral galaxy, IC 4248 ; the distance is about 210 million light-years. It was imaged with KUEYEN on March 28, 1999, with the same filters and exposure times as used for Photo 19b/99. The image quality is 0.75 arcsec and the field is 90 x 90 arcsec2. North is up and East is left.
