This is a “quickie” of one of my favorite deep sky objects, taken with my Celestron C8 SCT.  Edge-on galaxy NGC 4565 is the best example of the edge-on galaxy class in the sky.   I shot this right before sunrise when the object was just high enough to start imaging.   It could use more time and I’ll probably add to it (I did on Nov 29, 2014 – an additional 40 minutes of data.)   I’m pleased at what I have so far.  I haven’t seen it in quite some time and it was nice to image it again.
