NGC5907 is an excellent ccd target located in Draco and is a nearly edge-on galaxy. It is large, with dimensions of 12.3' x 1.8' and was imaged with the 15mm spacer and f/3.3FR (some field curvature present). The most remarkable aspect of this image is the very distinct galaxy colors that show up in this 44 minute exposure! A comparison of this image to one taken by the MX7C is also shown on the main SXV image page.
