NGC 2841 is a galaxy located in the constellation of Ursa Maggiore, it was discovered in 1788 by William Herschel and is about 46 million light years from us.
It is not a "famous" subject in the sense that it is not very photographed and needs long focal lengths to appreciate its details.
It is not a masterpiece but something has come out.

 

The shots are at the end of last December and the total integration is 9.1 hours

Paolo:

 

Very well done.  Super detail.  And I much prefer "Ursa Maggiore" to "Ursa Major".  The former sounds much more elegant to my crass, American English ears.

 

RC scopes can provide wonderful, crisp images, as you have demonstrated.  I have an RC8 sitting in a case unused for several years.  I really ought to get it out again, collimate, and see what I can do with it.

 

Best Regards,

Ben

I had problems with the link to flickr, not being able to change the first post I put it below.


This is the new one:

If any moderator could update the first post I would be grateful.
