Dan,

 

Nice job. The spiral arms on this one are very faint and difficult to bring out.

NGC2903

Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

 

This is an image of NGC2903. This is a barred spiral galaxy about 30 million light years away in the constellation Leo. This galaxy is also a field galaxy, meaning it does not belong to a larger cluster and is gravitationally isolated.

 

Comments and suggestions appreciated.

All,

I believe we are done with the old group. Before I close it off completely, does anyone happen to know how to transfer messages in bulk from one group to another? I have gotten some emails from members wanting to preserve posts from the old group.

Is it Possible to send all of the pictures together to me.  They are so extremely beautiful and amazing.  I would like to share them with my Sisters classes in New Mexico at the San Felipe Reservation.  
Thank you for all you are able to accomplish.

I don’t think there’s a way to do this. I would suggest them just downloading / forwarding the messages they want to keep.
