NGC 2841 in Ursa Major
Sketch and Details by Marek Płonka
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.
