The Galaxy NGC3938 is located in the Ursa Major Cluster and is approximately 60 million light years from Earth. It has a large number of H II regions showing as pinkish regions on the LRGB image below.  The galaxy doesn't seem to be often imaged, which perhaps is because it is relatively small, with an apparent size of 5.4 x 4.9 angular minutes.  The image below represents just over 13 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150.
