NGC 48 (UGC 133, PGC 929 and others) is the spiral at the center of the image located approximately 79 million light-years away in Andromeda.

 

NGC 49 (UGC 136, PGC 952 and others) is the galaxy to the left (east) of NGC 48. It is located approximately 214 million light-years away.

 

NGC 51 (UGC 138, PGC 974 and others) is the galaxy to the left of NGC 49. It is located approximately 239 million light-years away.

 

This field contains several other galaxies including IC 1534, 1535 and 1536, from right to left below the NGCs.

 

Luminance – 28x600s – 280 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

400 minutes total exposure – 6 hours 40 minutes

 

Imaged October 13th, 14th and 16th, 2020 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.
