NGC 2998 and friends

Gregg Ruppel
 

Hi all:

NGC is a spiral galaxy in Ursa Major that's about 195 million LY distant:

http://www.greggsastronomy.com/IMAGES/ngc2998-LRGB.jpg

At the upper left are NGC 3009 and NGC 3010a,b,c.  Several other NGC objects are in the same field near 2998.  NGC 3002 is also cataloged as MGC+07-20-052 and appears as a distorted double galaxy (MGC+07-20-052 NED01, MGC+07-20-052 NED02).  In the map below 3002 is plotted twice; one is a star.  NGC 3004 is also just a star.

Hi all,

Attached is a small version of the best I could do this morning
using remote controlled scope at my observatory.

<image001.jpg>

I really wanted to get the thing at the exact time of eclipse and
had everything set up to take series of 1 second images.  This
is one of them.  I plan to post a larger image on my
website, astroshow.com...

Unfortunately, the FocusMax system decided to refocus
at the critical times!  It was set to do it every hour but
I thought the refocus start time would be in sync with
my "take an image time."  Looks like it was in sync with
something else so it ran exactly when I didn't want it
to!  And the two events were about one hour apart!

Next time I'll get it right but I don't think I will live long
enough to do that...  :-)

Damn...  :-)

Anyway, for what its worth...

Thanks,

Howard
