Yeah but blue looks good and there are a few HII lumps scattered around the arms, so while not a lot, at least some star forming is going on at least

Cheers Mike. One day we must have a go in H-alpha.

I like your colour of the galaxy itself. Those knots in the arms may be globs?

Lots of background galaxies as well.

Another galaxy similar to this one is NGC1232 which is up now as well.

Thanks Greg. We will have a look for NGC 1232.

Curious to what the blob is at 10-11 o'clock??

And one day I'll get diffraction spikes like yours...

We're presuming the blob is a tidally disrupted galaxy. Colin thinks so too - see below.

Thanks Colin! Think of the forces involved. Best to keep our thumbs out of the way.

Thanks very much Simon. Glad you like it.

Thanks Marc. We are much encouraged.
