NGC 891 is an edge-on spiral galaxy found in the Andromeda constellation

This is a nice bright galaxy that can be photographed from the city. Because we see it edge-on, the light is more concentrated. This makes it easier for the telescope and camera to pick up the galaxy against the background light pollution.
