Caption: Spiral galaxy NGC 4565, optical image. This galaxy is seen nearly edge-on from Earth, but its spiral structure can be deduced from the presence of the dark lane of dust that bisects the disc. It also has a tight central bulge around its nucleus. NGC 4565 is around 49 million light years from Earth, in the constellation Coma Berenices. Imaged by the 0.9M telescope of the West Mountain Observatory, Utah, USA.
