revisited NGC 676 (Halifax)

BGO imaged NGC 676. I had viewed this edge-on galaxy in Pisces last fall from the backyard but wanted to have another look.

galaxy NGC 676 in luminance

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.

It clearly has an intense bright core but the disc is very faint. No wonder I struggled with this visually.
