NGC 891 is a 9.93 mag bright edge-on galaxy with 89.5 ° inclination, which means that it appears to us to be almost one hundred percent in the edge position. It is undisputed that this is a spiral galaxy. However, precisely because of the edge location, there is no "top view" that shows us the central area. In NGC 891 itself, the dustlane in the galactic plane can be seen very nicely structured. Dark branches rise from the dustlane perpendicular to the galactic plane into space.
