NGC 5033


Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

This is an image of NGC 5033. It is a spiral galaxy about 40 million light years away in the constellation Canes Venatici. It is about 100,000 light years in diameter, making it about the same size as the Milky Way. The bright nucleus and rotational center appear to be off center which may indicate the result of an ancient galaxy merger.

Comments and suggestions welcomed.

Bernard,

 

This is a really good image. You deep exposures make this one look quite a bit different than the normal images.
