Poster: Edge-on Spiral Galaxy NGC 4945

This poster shows a sky field around the spiral galaxy NGC 4945. In addition to NGC 4945 itself, some much more distant galaxies can be recognized as faint, slightly red light patches in the field. The vast majority of the point-like sources are stars in the Milky Way. However, a fair number of those near NGC 4945 are globular clusters belonging to this galaxy.
