Comment : One of the objects that I didn't processed earlier. Too bad data with dirt on the sensor. But now even that can be handled in the new software I use. A tiny galaxy, only 1/5 of the Moons angle diameter. It's an elliptical galaxy and the diameter is about as our Milky Way. The distance is 80 million ly. It was discovered already 1790 by William Herschel. I need a bigger telescope ! Watch the full resolution photo with all the objects marked from NGC 5322 plate solved, 6 objects are identfied.
