This very faint 10.9 mag spiral galaxy in Cetus has a very bright core but with very faint tidal arms. In this frame up close to a dozen galaxies are in this area alone (mag 14-17 ) and another dozen just around it.

Nice one.

That one has been on my to-do list now for 4 years. At -14 degrees it is a rare night that I can image that declination. When such a night happens I seem to always have something else to image. Maybe such a night will still happen but getting a bit late in the season. This time of the year and through to spring I have a really bad haze over the lake that rarely lifts that is really nasty to image through due to all the halos it creates.

Thanks Rick, Very unfortunate if the possibilities exist go for it there is still time :), And if mother nature gives you a break. Clear Skies my friend.

Very nice one, JAICOA!

It appears that you have captured a Type 2 OLR subclass outer pseudoring. The classification would be as follows:

(R'2)SA(rs)a or (R'2)SA(s)a

It's kind of hard to tell about the region around the central bulge at this resolution, although the negative image helps. Beautiful galaxy! Excellent work!

Very nice indeed. The colors and processing look great.
