M98

M98 

 

 

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.
I 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 Abell 1499 cluster under M98.
