NGC 247 on Cetus-Sculptor border. Imagine a cuttlefish with tentacles a-dangling down-o. See the void between the cuttlefish's tentacles. This void is believed to have been created by something big and black and sinister - a lump of gas or dark matter - scored a direct hit, punching a hole in a spiral galaxy, and triggering a ring of bright blue stars to form. Squillions of interesting background galaxies in this shot. South up, so the cuttlefish is legs-down. Compare with nearby NGC 253 and NGC 55. L 8hrs, RGB 2hrs each. Usual equipment.
