CommentWhen I went to Namibia, I wasn't actually expecting to take pictures of galaxies, I was more keen to shoot at nebulas and Milky Way panoramas. When I was there, I found out that this galaxy could look interesting also for a short focal length scope, so I gave it a try. I was very much impressed by the details and by the other surrounding galaxies.
