Maybe the most interesting galaxie in Leo. Though it's brightness, this beautiful Sb galaxie wasn't discovered by Charles Messier. It's location near the head of Leo made it a little easier to capture than the leo triplett, because these 8 degrees plus in declination, brought it out of the lightdome of Frankfurt
