The Fireworks Galaxy earned it's name due to the large amount of supernovae detected in it, more so than any other galaxy, including our own! I captured this data over three nights, for a total of 14 hours. This has now become my longest integration (as of October 2nd, 2022). I went through several revisions of this before settling on the image below.

NGC 6946
