I haven't come across this rather small and distant galaxy (NGC3294), so I thought I would give it a go !

At a distance of about 98 million light years, NGC3294 is located in the constellation Leo Minor. From Earth it occupies c2 x 1 arc minutes of sky, so its apparent size is quite small.  It's a spiral galaxy with a slight bar at its center..

The LRGB image below represent 16 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150.

That`s a corker of an image,and although small lots of detail, a true labour of love. Well done. Des
