Subject: [DarkSkyNewMexico] Arp 38
Arp 38 (NGC 6412, UGC 10897 and others) is a nice spiral located approximately 74 million light-years away in Draco. In the ‘Spiral galaxies – companions on arms – low surface brightness companions’ class, it looks like Arp might have made a mistake. There doesn’t appear to be any companions. I have a feeling some of the knots in NGC 6412 were thought to be galaxies.
Luminance – 27x600s – 270 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2
390 minutes total exposure – 6 hours 30 minutes
Imaged June 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2019 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.
