M98 is an intermediate spiral galaxy about
45 million light-years away in Coma Berenices, near to the 5m
star 6 Com. This is a large galaxy (the apparent diameter is
about 10') but because of relatively low surface brightness
it is not quite easy to take it's decent picture.
think that (with my equipment) the result is not so bad. In
the photograph I also like those small and extremely distant
galaxies in the background, such as the
cluster under M98.
