Let's go on with the galaxy season - NGC 4395 is a fine spiral with huge H-II regions in it that even have their own NGC number - see the annotated image for that.

The galaxy is about 14 million light-years away from us with "just" 55.000lys in diameter and a central black hole with 300.000 times the mass of our sun.
