Object name: NGC2748
NGC 2748 is a polar ring spiral galaxy located in Camelopardalis just west of Draco's tail. It is a medium size spiral about 66,000 light-years across assuming its redshift look back time of 69 million years is correct. That agrees very closely to the median value of Tully-Fisher measurements which give 68.5 million light-years for its distance. The polar ring is inferred from the two broad star sprays seen at right angles to the plane of the galaxy's disk. It was discovered by John Herschel on September 2, 1828.
