Hi ! CN friends , I want to share with you this beautiful galaxy Ursa Major I could enjoy this weekend on a sky Bortle 3/9 at the usual place of observation .. I had never seen before and caused me very good impression. At first glance just a round disc appears showing his face towards us and a core that is brighter than the general extension , but looking a good time , achievement distinguish some areas of low brightness as the top left and begin to distinguish the arms and the spiral shape . Lateral view later certify what I'm seeing , but I could not believe if you see a picture of Sky Safary , of course I'm watching this, I had to capture the excited this paper . The galaxy is large and I would say an average brightness , may even gain some more support in my power for lack of funds but I'll leave it to later. If you have a chance not to miss this galaxy that is awesome.

Pardon my English translator.


Best regards.

Roberto.

Roberto,

A beautiful capture of this fine face on spiral in Ursa Major. The foreground star field also looks great.

Frank :)

A beautiful observation of 3184. I have also noticed you've seen the spiral arms more defined like I did, perhaps I should give it another go on a better evening.

Have you noticed 3179 too? I suppose it was just outside your field of view to the lower left.

No known galaxy NGC 3179 and accompanying long step in theory enters in the same field, search the area again using more gain and a pupil of 2mm lower output to capture.

Thank you all for the comments.

Regards.

Hola Roberto.
What a great sketch!
Que estimas que sea la magnitud de tus cielos?
Quiero intentar buscar galaxias aqui en Los Angeles con mis dos telescopios grandes y tu dibujo me da esperanzas jaja
Pero mis cielos son aproximadamente entre 4.5 y 6.5 magnitud.

Hi! Alex, this observation place is situated more than 90 miles from my home, I have to commute for an hour and a half, my advice is to come out of light pollution, the sky has a visual magnitude between NELM 6 / 6.5 SQM 21.3 arriving sky brightness.

I hope you enjoy these galaxies in scope.

Regards.
