Tiger's eye galaxy

Postby smerral » Wed Jan 01, 2020 1:44 pm

The Tiger's eye galaxy imaged last night. NGC 2841 is a giant spiral galaxy with properties similar to those of the Andromeda Galaxy. It is a prototypical flocculent spiral galaxy, a type of spiral galaxy whose arms are patchy and discontinuous. It is 46 million light years distant.

Imaged last night with the C8 and Starlight Xpress SXVR H9-C. Total integration 135 minutes. This galaxy does have many star forming regions so might benefit from some narrowband imaging.
