    Default NGC4631 The Whale Galaxy

    Mount - ZEQ25GT,scope - 200PDS,Canon 350D modified fitted with a Astronomik CLS filter,ISO1600,approx 1 hr of data

    NGC 4631 (also known as the Whale Galaxy or Caldwell 32) is an edge-on spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici. This galaxy's slightly distorted wedge shape gives it the appearance of a herring or a whale, hence its nickname.Because this nearby galaxy is seen edge-on from Earth, professional astronomers observe this galaxy to better understand the gas and stars located outside the plane of the galaxy.
