Object name: NGC2336
NGC 2336 is a beautiful barred spiral 10 degrees from the north celestial pole in Camelopardalis about 100 million light-years from us. It has many nice arm segments that seem to come from a ring-like structure around the end of the bar. The ring seems rather pink in my image, apparently due to many unresolved HII regions. NED classifies it as SAB(r)bc with a Seyfert 2 nucleus. The NGC project says SBc. It has a companion well out of my field to the south, IC 0467. I might have been able to catch both if I'd realized it was there. In any case, they don't appear to be interacting though are at the same distance. For those with wider fields than mine, they would make a good pair as both have a lot of detail. NGC 2336 was discovered by Wilhelm Tempel in 1876.
