NGC 7090     Indus / Indianer
NGC 7090 is a barred spiral galaxy in the constellation Indus in the southern sky and was discovered in 1834 by the English astronomer John Herschel. It has an apparent magnitude of +10.7 mag and an angular extent of 7.8' 1.3'. We see it exactly in edge-on position, the spiral arms appear here as dark dusty clouds, illuminated by the bright centre of the galaxy. What I like about this image is the apparent outline of the bright foreground stars, which really bring out the galaxy.
