Re: NGC 3718

Really nice detail in this one. I really like the polar ring galaxies.


This is another where colors are vastly different in images. I think I had asked you in the previous one your posted. Did you use the PI Photometric script to get the color ratios? Not using PI, I typically use G2V or APASS (AAVSO) stars and like the previous (maybe NGC 660), I don’t see any of the blue.

This is an image of NGC 3718, also known as the Arp 214. It is either a lenticular or spiral galaxy. It has a warped S-shape that is most likely die to gravitational interaction with NGC 3729 seen in the upper left of the image.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.
