NGC3628 Arp 317

31 December 1969

NGC3628 Arp 317

A truly stunning edge on galaxy in Leo, making up the Leo Triplet with the better known Messiers 66 & 65. Halton Arp included it his atlas due to its complex and unusual structure. The dust lane showed up superbly for me in my sketch. Made on Nov 26th 2017. Using the 505mm mirror and Watec 120N+. The image has been flipped to give N as up in the sketch.
