Galaxy NGC4565 in Coma Berenice

“Coma Berenice” is a constellation that barely has visible stars in light polluted area’s. However, it hides a million billion of galaxies, far far away… and this is just one of those.  At a distance of 30 million lightyears, I ‘ve seen it in my old 20cm Newtonian as a fine needle in the sky. The amount of detail that my current image shows is incomparable.
