Object name: NGC3607
Designation(s): NGC3607, NGC3605, NGC3608,
The NGC 3607 group consists mostly of elliptical or elliptical-like galaxies with spirals limited to the edges. It is about 50 to 70 million light-years away and located in the hindquarters of Leo the Lion. The entire group doesn't fit my field. I was going to center on NGC 3607 but the two spirals well to the south caught my eye. I couldn't quite fit NGC 3608 in and them too without rotating my camera. As it was -30C the night I took this and I don't have an electrical rotator that didn't happen. Ellipticals aren't often as interesting as spirals so I opted to cut off the elliptical. Also, I couldn't quite fit in NGC 3599 an SA0: member of the group that was just too far west and still fit in PGC34493 which seemed more interesting to me though a lot smaller. The f/8 version of this scope came out several years after I bought the f/10 version. It would have had the field I need. Consult the annotated image for other galaxies in the 50 to 70 million light-year range for others in the group.
