NGC 3190 and 3193
      #3693612 - 03/20/10 12:42 PM

Another pair that I found a fun challenge to observe and sketch earlier this week.

NGC 3190 Spiral Galaxy in Leo
NGC 3193 Face on Elliptical Galaxy
3.16.10
06:45-07:14 UT
Mag: 11.2
LMV 6.9-7.0
Seeing: III, clear, cold

This is a faint spiral galaxy kinda of edge (think I said face on in the sketch, type on my part) on, perhaps tilted. The core is bright and large sitting in the dust lanes. The SE end is disturbed by mottling showing a possible dark lane.

NGC 3193 Elliptical Galaxy Face on
Mag: 12.1

No details showing on this face on elliptical. Really was a smudge with a tinge of brightening near the core. Both of these are part of the Hickson 44 group.

The Hickson 44 Compact Group of Galaxies are close enough that they interact gravitationally. Photos can show these galaxies sharing materials as they interact. A wonderful group to take a peek at this spring. They are about 60 million light years from us. One of my observing members shared with me that whenever he looks at a galaxy he often thinks that there has to be a civilization of some type in the galaxy and he wonders if a creature might have been looking up at us and we, in this case, 60 million years later, are just seeing their light arriving to us. A rather interesting thought I would share.

Jay,

Very fine sketching of this pair. Tracking down galaxies on clear spring nights is really great fun.

I would say stunning, Jay. Very nice detail and photo-like rendering.

It's always nice to have more than one object in the eyepiece. Excellent sketch!

Jay,

An excellent observation of NGC 3190 and 3193. This is an interesting pair of faint galaxies in Leo. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
