So I always thought that M108, a galaxy that is tilted at about 75 degress to us, was not very interesting. I thought that until I started digging out the details and saw it has some nice outflows and other structures.

Don't forget to use the full screen button and click to zoom and pan around the details and background galaxies.

Thanks for taking the time to look . . .

Another beauty. You did a great job bringing out the Ha areas, especially nice since you didn't collect separate Ha data.

Thanks for the kind comments - I know it is not a grand design type - but still interesting in it's own way.
