The Sculptor Galaxy (NGC 253)

The oldest light that I’ve captured thus far, from a Galaxy far, far away (situated 11.42 million light years from Earth).

The Sculptor Galaxy, also known as the Silver Coin or Silver Dollar Galaxy (NGC 253), is an intermediate spiral galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. It is a Starburst galaxy, which means that it is undergoing a period of intense star formation (well it was 11.42 million years ago, as the light took that long to reach us).
