This is an example of a galaxy that really needs a dark sky and my sky is anything but dark these days. The seeing was generally pretty ordinary too but I hope the resultant image (took many hours to process) is acceptable.
I incorporated some techniques from the new book by Rob Gendler: “Lessons from the Masters—Current concepts in Astronomical Image Processing”, which I would thoroughly recommend.

NGC 300 is a large (21.9' x 15.5') fairly low surface brightness spiral galaxy once thought to be part of the Sculptor group but now thought to be a foreground object. In general shape it somewhat resembles M33 in the northern hemisphere. The apparent magnitude is 9.1.
