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.

Very nice Brian. Where are you finding all the clear skies, every time I look on Sat24 Scotland seems to be covered in clouds.

Carole, the larger scale forecast seems to include the far north east with the north west but there is a huge difference in rainfall/cloud cover within a relatively short distance. We often get clear spells when 40 miles west it's cloudy. :)
