n2336 is a10.4 mag spiral galaxy with a central bar and delicate arms orbiting Polaris about 10 degrees from the Celestial North Pole. Estimates for the distance average around 100 MLY. Seeing was (and has been) terrible around here. I was planning on heavy integration but will go it another time when the conditions are better. Took some HA subs, but suprisingly they added nothing of interest so left them out.
