M98




M98
Constellation - Coma Berenices
Spiral galaxy
Distance - 44mly
Mag 10.10

Date 24/4/14
Transparency - Poor
SQM 21.1 (LM6.1)

Telescope 16" f/4.5
EP 28mm ES x68 (TFoV 1˚)

Sketch notes
Once again poor transparency made seeing any possible detail very hard, I just couldnt pick out contrast in the arms very well at all although I think that could be tricky in excellent transparency also.
Very few background stars but an easy start hop from Denebola.
