Object name: IC0592
Designation(s): IC0592, IC0593,
IC 592 and IC 593 are the largest galaxies in a group of galaxies about 300 million light-years distant in central Sextans. IC 592 is classified as Sbc and SABc? by Seligman. I can't say I see the bar. Assuming its distance is 290 million light-years which is what its redshift says, it is about 76,000 light-years across. It was discovered by Stephane Javelle on March 21, 1893 and is #665 in his catalog. Rather typical in size for a spiral but its arm structure isn't all that typical. It has two major arms and a rather odd arm segment on the eastern side. The two main arms are full of blue star clouds. The brightest is on the far eastern edge of the arm segment and looks almost like a star in my image. Unfortunately seeing was very poor when this was taken. It was put back onto the retake immediately list but weeks of clouds forced me to work with what bad data I had. Not only that but the 7.5 magnitude K5 giant star just to the southwest cast a huge red glare over most of the image since this was taken through rather dense, high clouds. More on conditions in a bit.
