"NGC 6118 is a grand design spiral galaxy with prominent, well-defined arms in its disk. At 80 million light years away it is a bit of a challenge to capture the structure and make for a compelling image. This data was acquired back in 2013. Due to a hard disk failure and loss of calibration files- this image was "reconstructed" by using calibration data of contemporary observing sessions in May of 2013. Some years prior to this picture a bright supernova occurred in this galaxy- but it has since faded and now only a small pink star forming region is visible. Perhaps someday soon another massive star will explode in this galaxy." A wider-scale photo can be seen HERE.
