NGC 2146


Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

 

This is an image of NGC 2146. It is a barred spiral galaxy about 70 million light years away in the constellation Camelopardalis. The galaxy is about 80,000 light years in diameter and is known for the dusty artery like spiral arms across the core and the spiral arm bent 45 degrees. This is most likely the result of a close encounter with nearby galaxy NGC 2146A. There are two version below; one showing a close up of the galaxy and the other a wider FOV showing nearby NGC 2146A near the top of the frame.

 

Comments and suggestions appreciated.

Bernard:
I like the wide field view and the saturated colors!  Imaging targets close to the NCP is often difficult; did you have any issues with the 20 minute luminance subs?  Thanks for sharing.
Clear skies,

Another superb image, Bernard, especially the dust lanes.  I'll put this on my to-do list.
