NGC-253, A Bright Galaxy In The Constellation of Sculptor! This is the first light Test of a Deep Sky Space object using my unmodified Canon 6D. I’m very please with its performance…very Sensitive, clean at the Higher ISO it is great for Comets & Galaxies! This Galaxy sits very low in the south…so I was shooting through some hazy clouds for this shot.I need to do more testing on Nebula, to see how well it records the Red end of the Spectrum! This was a single 4 minute exposure at ISO 2500, at the prime focus of my home-built 16″ Newt. Scope, taken at my Observatories  in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

NGC-253 is a relatively Nearby Galaxy, located at 11.4 Million Light Years away, it shines at ~ Magnitude 8, so is visible in Binocular from a dark location.
