NGC 253, “The Silver Coin” or “Silver Dollar Galaxy”

Object Name: NGC 253 (Sculptor Galaxy)
Object Type: Galaxy
Location: Iglesuela (Spain)
Date: 26/08/2014
Media: Graphite pencil, white paper, scanned and inverted with paint
Telescope: Newton 6″ f5 + Hyperion 13mm (57x)

Notes: This is a beautiful galaxy, it is big an brilliant and it looks like silver coin (also called “moneda de plata”). Although that object does not reach much above the horizon, I can discern entire galaxy (or almost) easily and the core shows more brilliant. The galaxy is elongated and thin because it is edgewise.

Best Regards
