Description

I found this interesting galaxy that I decided to image - the NGC 4535 or The lost galaxy of Copeland.

In the 1950s, when amateur astronomer Leland S. Copeland first fixed his telescope lens on a distant galaxy in the Virgo constellation, he saw an eerie spiral shrouded in dust. Copeland — who was a professional poet fond of writing about the cosmos — dubbed the spiral "The Lost Galaxy," a name that has stuck some 70 years later.

NGC 4535 is accompanied by many other interesting objects as M49, NGC 4488 (WOW), NGC 4519, NGC 4522 and so on.

Exploring the night sky is quite a pleasure. Clear skies!
