Zooming in on the galaxy NGC 1316

This zoom starts with a wide spread of sky including many familiar constellations, then closes in on the less dramatic constellation of Fornax (The Furnace), where NGC 1316 is located. This lenticular galaxy bears the scars of a turbulent history, during which it has engulfed smaller galaxies.
