Ngc 1291 in Eridanus

This is NGC 1291, an unusual barred ring galaxy in Eridanus, unusual because it has a barred ring structure, and unusual because it has two NGC catalogue numbers (1291 and 1269).

This was approximately 8.3 hours of LRGB over three nights, one night with excellent seeing and two with very poor seeing. It's still east enough that I hope to re-image it during the next new moon to substitute the poor data for better.
