The Large Magellanic Cloud
Taken with a SBIG STL CCD camera and a 135mm lens on a Takahashi NJP mount with LRVB and Halpha filters. 
L=R=V=B=6x10min each. Ha = 66x10min
The large Magellanic cloud is a neighbour 'irregular galaxy', however from this picture we can see clearly that it used to be a spiral galaxy.
The remaining  galaxy arms are clearly visible on the outer parts of it.
