Object name: IC0302
IC 302 is a low surface brightness spiral in eastern Cetus. Its distance is a bit vague. Redshift puts it at 261 million light-years but the median of one set of Tully-Fisher measurements say 181 million light-years while the average says 194 million light-years. The redshift distance is likely severely compromised by its motion through space as it implies a size of 176,500 light-years. Quite a large value for a low surface brightness galaxy. The Tully-Fisher measurements imply a size of 122,000 to 131,000 light-years. Still large but at least in the reasonable range.
