Object name: PGC009247
PGC 9247 is a SAB(rs)bc spiral galaxy about 210 million light-years distant in the southeast corner of Andromeda. While its core region is relatively bright and lacks blue stars it is surrounded by a very faint set of very blue arms. This too was taken through thick smoke that has plagued me in late September from fires over 1600 km from me. The smoke had thinned some by the time this was taken and didn't totally kill blue and green light as it had for a couple earlier objects. Still, it cost me a lot of photons making the field a couple magnitudes fainter than it should be and nearly cost me any chance to catch the faint outer arms. Still, I think the color balance is closer to reality for this one than others taken through the thick smoke. Seeing was better as well but far from great.
