NGC 3718 ja NGC 3729 - 14.3.2015 at 04.00 Pieksämäki Observation number 34249

Visibility II / V

Timo Kantola, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Near the bucket of Otava such a beautiful galaxy mixed with gravitational forces. I put the tube to shoot last night and such came. At the top left is the smaller NGC 3729, and in the background a few other distant galaxies.

The colors of the previous three nights were also described, but when I don't control the mixing of colors, let's go traditional mv. picture.

Color picture maybe then sometime.

EDIT: I turned the picture one more so that the north at the top, the east at the left.

Ja ennen kaikkea kuvassa näkyy upea ja himmeä galaksijoukko Hickson 56.
