NGC 2683 - UFO Galaxy

Viewed on 13th March 2018 with my 115mm ED refactor. (This is the last observation for that evening.)

A faint, edge-on galaxy. I viewed only at 36x because in the dark, I mistook my 7mm Delite EP for my 15mm EP, and then wondered why it looked so poorly at the higher magnification.

There is an absolutely stunning image of the galaxy on the attached website. Make sure that U click on the image to enlarge it.
