Object name: HOLMBERGVIII
Designation(s): HOLMBERGVIII, UGC08303,
Holmberg VIII/UGC 8303 is a companion to the far more famous NGC 5033 to the north out of my field of view. It is located in Canes Venatici. Distance measurements for it range from 54 million light-years by redshift to 66 by a Tully-Fisher measurement. But as it is considered a satellite galaxy of NGC 5033 the distance to that galaxy must be considered. That covers an even wider range with APOD and a couple other sources settling on 38 to 40 million light-years. NGC 5033 is considered to have two satellites much like we have the two Magellanic Clouds. They are Holmberg VIII and UGC 08314 also in my image to the upper left of Holmberg VIII. NGC 5033 is also considered to have been affected by NGC 5005 which I've not yet imaged. Which, if any caused the strong warp seen in NGC 5033 I wasn't able to determine.
