Object name: NGC5014
NGC 5014 caught my eye due to its odd dust lane. Near edge-on spiral galaxies have dust lanes that go down their length bisecting the galaxy. Though those lacking dust may not show a dust lane at all. But this one has a dust lane that goes vertically through the galaxy west of the core. By some fantastic coincidence, two field stars from our galaxy mark the endpoints of this dust lane. Both the stars and the dust lane are rather a rather similar shade of red as well. I did tone them down quite a bit as otherwise, they overpowered the dust lane. I did this equally so their relative brightness difference is maintained. There is a short dust lane below the core more where one should be. Seeing wasn't up to snuff, nor was transparency. The core has a blue blob on its east side according to the SLOAN image but it was below my resolution level.
