Description

I can just about make out the tidal tail from NGC 3628 if I stretch the image more. And as you can see from the framing, I had hoped to include the tail in the image. But more subs are needed, if I get the chance I aim to get more data and update this image.

Imaged over 3 nights from Jan 27 2019 to Feb 4 2019
