Date   
NGC 4564 + 4567 + 4568 with SN 2020fqv

Dan Crowson
 

NGC 4564 (UGC 7773, PGC 42051 and others) near the top center is an E-E/S0 type galaxy located approximately 52 million light-years away in Virgo.

 

NGC 4567 (UGC 7777, PGC 42064, VV 219a and others) is the galaxy interacting with NGC 4568 (UGC 776, PGC 42069, VV 219b and others) below. Both appear to be at about the same distance as NGC 4564 above.

 

On March 31st, 2020, a supernova was detected in NGC 4568. More information can be found on TNS here - https://wis-tns.weizmann.ac.il/object/2020fqv. I added a custom catalog to PixInsight to have it annotated.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged May 15th, 16th and 17th, 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.

Brian,

 

I agree. It does look like the Cocoon or maybe the Trifid.

Yes, it does resemble the ‘big’ Cocoon.

Another beauty!  You’re killing it with these long integrations and total exposure (hope you are getting a great discount for scope time).  Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

This is an image of M83, also known as the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy. It is a barred spiral galaxy about 15 million light years away in the constellation Hydra. It is one of the closest and brightest barred spiral galaxies in the sky and is visible with binoculars. Its name is derived from its resemblance to M101, the Pinwheel Galaxy. This image combines data taken with two separate telescopes; a CDK17 and a 12.5 inch RCOS. It represents over 39 hours of total exposure time.

Hi,

This is an image of Centaurus A, also known as NGC 5128. Thee is disagreement about whether this is a lenticular or elliptical galaxy. It is between 10 and 16 million light years away in the constellation Centaurus. It is a starburst galaxy and the intense star formation is thought to be the result of a merger of a large elliptical galaxy merging with a smaller spiral galaxy. You can see an Ha stream of gas in the lower left that may be a remnant of this merger. The data from this image was collected by a CDK17 and RCOS 12.5-inch telescopes. It represents over 41 hours of total exposure.

Bernard,

That comet is cruising fast towards the bowl of the dipper and beyond, so no longer close to that galaxy.  Also slowly fading away.
