Object name: NGC3486
NGC 3486 is a multi-fragmented arm spiral in western Leo Minor about 45 million light-years distant. It has a very bright core but faint arms. NED classes it as SAB(r)c and a Seyfert 2 galaxy with HII emission. The NGC Project says simply Sc. Assuming the 45 million light-year distance I measure it at about 93,000 light-years in diameter. The HII regions came through surprisingly well for that distance even though I used no Hydrogen Alpha data to help bring them out (the pink spots). At first glance, it appears to be a grand design spiral but then you realize the arms are just fragments taking it out of that classification which needs complete, well-defined arms.
