Without a doubt, one of the morphologically strangest galaxies
I've captured. We see it near the Cassiopeia Milky Way, but
it's still a member of the Virgo supercluster, at about 12 Mpc
distant. It's really just packed full of star forming regions, tightly
This is only one hour's worth of luminance at f/5, 1570mm focal
length. Camera is an ASI1600, gain 100, 5-minute subframes,
presented here at about .625 arcsec/pixel, and cropped to be
a reasonable fit for this post. Processed mostly using APP.
