Description

NGC 4236 is a Barred Spiral Galaxy in Draco, the Dragon. Its part of the M81 group but its not imaged nearly as much as M81 or M82. Its actually fairly big - 22.6' x 6.9' -  but its very faint. This makes it a more  difficult object to image than its size would indicate. I've still fairly heavily cropped this image.
