NGC 3344

NGC 3344 is a relatively isolated[ barred spiral galaxy located 22.5[ million light years away in the constellation Leo Minor. This galaxy belongs to the group known as the Leo spur, which is a branch of the Virgo Supercluster. Image taken with an 8 inch RC telescope, QSI 683 mono CCD, MyT mount. Lum = 80 x 480 seconds, RGB was binned 2×2 32 x 240 second each channel, Ha 16 x 900 seconds. I’m amazed when zoomed in on the full resolution how many distant fuzzy galaxies in this picture.
