Ngc 5907 aka the Splinter galaxy in Draco ; magnitude:10.3 ; size: 11.5'x1.7' ; fairly bright and elongated, edge on spiral galaxy  ; the central area being brighter than the edges. I used a 10mm Ethos at 158x magnification with my 14.5 Starstructure Dob f/4.3

Raul,

 

A very fine edge on galaxy. Always enjoy observing this one on a clear spring or summer night.

 

You did a very job on this sketch.

 

Frank :)
