Object name: NGC5204
NGC 5204 is a dwarf, very blue, spiral galaxy of the Magellanic class, that is barely recognizable as a spiral, about 15 million light-years distant in Ursa Major. It is considered a companion to be one of 4 easily resolved, blue companions to M101 though M101 is over 6 degrees to its southeast, far out of my image frame. It is listed as having a lot of HII regions which show up as blue in my image due to the large number of very young, blue hot stars they contain. This is another one that could benefit from H alpha data. Fortunately, its redshift is low enough that my 6nm filter should work. It was discovered by William Herschel on April 24, 1789. It is in the second H400 program.
