Object name: NGC2742
I image rarely seen, usually peculiar galaxies. This one is rarely seen but the only thing peculiar about it is it is very normal with lots of detail yet I imaged it anyway. I did so as I'm working on all H400 galaxies I can from my latitude. Being a classic grand design spiral with a lot of detail I was more than a little surprised to find virtually no images of it on the net. Why such a nearly perfect spiral isn't all over the net surprised me. One paper says of it; "The spiral pattern in NGC 2742 is beautifully regular. It is multi-armed; five crossings of the major axis can be traced on one side and three or four on the other (depending on whether one counts satellite arm fragments as separate arms)." There is a diffuse radio emission to its north. Is it related? I found one paper saying maybe.
