Object NGC 7814

NGC 7814 (also known as UGC 8 or Caldwell 43) is a spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus. The galaxy is seen edge-on from Earth. It is sometimes referred to as “the little sombrero”, a miniature version of Messier 104.

You can see another faint galaxy, IC 5381, to the right of NGC 7814

This galaxy was imaged over 3 nights of poor seeing, and really poor transparency (although no moon), so it took a lot of exposure time to bring out the central bulge of the galaxy, and dust lane.
