NGC 3504 (UGC 6118, PGC 33371 and others) is the nice barred spiral at the bottom right. This galaxy is located approximately 85 million light-years away in Leo Minor.
NGC 3512 (UGC 6128, PGC 33432 and others) is the delicate spiral at the left located approximately 79 million-light years away.
I caught Asteroid 8360 1990 FD1 on a couple of nights. You can see a trail in color above and in monochrome below NGC 3504.
Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2
360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours
Imaged April 10th, 12th and 15th, 2020 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.
