Description

Not often imaged. NGC 3511 is an intermediate spiral galaxy 45 million light years from here in the constellation of Crater. It is estimated to be around 70 percent of the size of the Milky Way. The smaller face on barred spiral galaxy at the bottom of the frame is NGC 3513. It is exhibiting very extensive star forming regions.

Imaged in LRGB on our Officina Stellare RiDK 700 and RiDK 500 (RGB) telescopes at El Sauce (Obstech), Chile.
