Object name: NGC5676
NGC 5676 is a two-armed barred? spiral whose arms knotty and ill-defined after a point that it is almost a flocculent galaxy. NED classifies it as SA(rs)bc with HII emission. NGC project says Sc while Seligman says Sbc. Several papers say it has a short low contrast bar which I thought I saw. Or did I? Several HII regions came out in my rather low-resolution image thanks to below average seeing. The brightest is just right of what NED lists as a separate galaxy and is listed as such in several catalogs but which to me is just one of many knots in the galaxy's arms. I've pointed to it because it almost points to the largest HII region seen in my image in the galaxy. Redshift puts it 100 million light-years distant while non-redshift measurements say it is a bit further at 110 million. Very good agreement. Assuming the round 100 million light-year distance I measure its diameter at at least 120,000 light-years. A rather large spiral maybe on par with M31.
