Description

NGC 4236 taken with anAP155 at prime focus. NGC 4236 is another member of the M81 group of galaxies. It is about 11.7 million ly away. The L frames were taken about a year ago and RGB data was collected this imaging season. Ha frames were collected but did not seem to contribute to enhancing the HII regions in this galaxy. It has a low surface brightness,making processing a bit difficult (at least for me)
