Beschreibung zum Objekt

The primary aim of this image was the detection of the known tidal stellar streams which  span a huge ring around NGC 5907. But due to the bad sky conditions (skyglow) here at my location it was not possible to show the stream in the color image. Nevertheless I was able to show the stream in the inverted contrast enhanced image which is shown below

A wonderfull image of the tidal stellar stream can be found at Capella Observatorium.
