Inclined Unbarred Spiral

NGC 2841

NGC 2841 in Ursa Major
Sketch and Details by Marek Płonka

Sketch information:
My sketch shows NGC 2841 in Ursa Major.
NGC 2841 is an inclined unbarred spiral galaxy. It is approximately 46
million light years distant.
Even using averted vision I wasn’t able to see more clear view. But I am
lucky guy, because a few minutes after I had finished the draw, the clouds
I am sure, I will be visiting this galaxy again. I hope, it is possible
to see the bright core in my 8-inch scope in better air condition.

  1. Marek,
    Truly faint and fuzzy is what you have rendered here.
    It sort of wants to make me go out there and give it a look myself. Excellent sketch!

  2. Marek,

    Excellent capture, that is about the way I see it in my 10″ inch on a good night.

    Frank 🙂
