This is an image of a rather obscure galaxy in the constellation of Canes Venatici. The galaxy is thought to be between 8 and 16 million light years away. It has an irregular structure, with little hint of the classic spiral shape. This image was taken on May 20, 21 and 22, 2011. It is a 7 hour exposure. Click on the image for a better view.
