Hi,

This is an image of M108, also known as the Surfboard Galaxy. It is an edge-on barred spiral galaxy about 46 million light years away in the constellation Ursa Major. It is located near the Owl Nebula (M97), which is located only 48 arc minutes southeast of the galaxy.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.
