Object name: NGC6926
Designation(s): NGC6926, NGC2629, UGC11585,
Galaxy hunting in Aquila is about like hunting polar bear in the Antarctic. Unlike Antarctic polar bears or arctic penguins, there are a few galaxies in Aquila worth looking at if you look long and hard enough to find them. NGC 6926 is one such galaxy. It is a huge rather disrupted spiral galaxy some 150,000 light years tall if you count the short plume to the north and 130,000 if you don't. Either way, it is a very large spiral. Its northern arm is drawn out and has two major star clouds in it. The southern is so disrupted it has a hole in the middle of it. It is part of a group of galaxies. Two others in the group are in my image, NGC 6929, a peculiar SA0+ galaxy to its east and UGC 11585 in the southwest corner of my image which is also listed as a peculiar galaxy. The status of NGC 6929 as peculiar is a bit questionable as indicated by the colon in the "pec:" designation. UGC 11585, however, has no question about its peculiarity. Like NGC 6929 it has an apparent hole in its disk. It looks like I overprocessed it so the field star developed the dreaded "Panda Eye" dark circle. But the dark area is real. An ordinary looking edge on dwarf disk galaxy, 6dF J2032205-020828 may also be a member of the group.
