Arp 134 Messier 49 NGC 4472

31 December 1969

Arp 134 Messier 49 NGC 4472

Bright but quite featureless bright round, much brighter in the centre galaxy in Virgo, deciding where the halo stops is difficult. There are many faint tiny galaxies in the field. As an Arp the special interaction is with a very faint & diffuse UGC galaxy barely visible just below the star in the top left hand corner of my sketch. Sketch made early morning 8-2-2018 using the 505mm mirror & Watec 120N+ video cam. The Moon was close by, sky was hazy and dawn was close!
