Object name: NGC3906
NGC 3906 s an SB(s)d spiral about 54 million light-years distant in Ursa Major about 5 degrees south of far more famous M109. The UGC describes it as: "Eccentric bar. A large number of thin arms." I agree about the eccentric bar but the "thin arms" comment doesn't fit any image I've seen of this galaxy. I also have trouble with it being a d galaxy. That means widely separated arms of which I saw none. Just a disk full of star clusters. The NGC Project simply says SB... for a classification. That makes more sense to me. There is a blue star-like object at the eastern (left) end of the bar the NED considers part of the galaxy though some sources say it is a blue star in our galaxy. I tend to agree it is just a star. The disk of the galaxy is very off center from the bar. This makes it a sloshed galaxy but I found no mention of this odd fact.
