NGC 4565 (scaled down) Many faint galaxies can be seen in background.
This beautiful edge-on galaxy, in constellation Coma Berenices, has a unbarred spiral structure.
Distance from our home planet is about 53 milijon light-years.
Transparency was poor, but seeing better than usually in my location.
Result from that, is tighter stars and some details can be seen in the galaxy disc.
