Object name: NGC2415
NGC 2415 is a strange galaxy in Gemini or is it Lynx? Some sources say Lynx while others say Gemini. The Sky puts it about 50 seconds of arc south of Lynx and thus in Gemini. In any case, it is about 180 million light-years distant by redshift. Many sources classify it as a questionable Magellanic irregular galaxy but it certainly has well defined, if peculiar, spiral arms. Several notes at NED say it is a double galaxy showing no tidal effects. I don't know if they mean two galaxies in the same line of site or it is a merger of two. I have trouble seeing either but it is very bright and in many images, including mine, seems to have two cores. The one to the right is actually a star cloud when seen at a higher resolution than I had this rather poor night.
