I like the processing on this one, especially the added Ha.  There are a LOT of background galaxies when viewing the full size image.  Thanks for sharing.

Clear skies,

This is an image of NGC55. Wikipedia says this is called the Whale Galaxy, but I am pretty sure that is more commonly used to refer to NGC 4631. Perhaps the Southern Whale galaxy. It is a barred spiral galaxy about 7 million light years away in the constellation Sculptor. It is one of the closest galaxies in the local group, which is the group of galaxies that we reside in.
