      Description

      41 hours of integration time acquire from the 16 RCOS at Sierra Remote Observatory. The small spiral galaxy NGC2276 has a very high rate of star formation, with six supernovae in the last sixty years. Not much info about the other lenticular galaxy. There is also a nice bit of IFN all around.
