Spiral galaxy NGC 253

Measuring 70 000 light-years across and laying 13 million light-years away, the nearly edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 253 is revealed here in an image from the Wide Field Imager (WFI) on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory. The image is based on data obtained through four different filters (R, V, H-alpha and OIII). North is up and East to the left. The field of view is 30 arcminutes.
