Description

A look at M106 and its local area - so many smaller galaxies in this object making the wider FoV very interesting. My favourite being NGC 4288 the small barred spiral galaxy at the lower left which there does not seem to be an example of elsewhere on AB.

Rev C - Just a crop of the main focus area - resolution seems to just about support the crop.
