Object name: UGC10675
Designation(s): UGC10675, PGC059511, LEDA200340,
UGC 10675 is a double galaxy in Hercules about 0.8 degrees northeast of Epsilon Herculis. At least it is listed in the UGC as a double galaxy. This misled me. It turns out the two galaxies the UGC refers to are nearly 2 minutes apart. The northern one is LEDA 200340 while the southern one is PGC 059511. Since PGC 059511 is a double galaxy itself due to a recent merger I thought that is what UGC 10675 referred to. This caused me to put it lower in the field than I expected. In any case, my target was PGC 059511. One paper describes it as; " Asymmetric spiral, with photometric parameters proper for an S0 type and presents a prominent tail pointing to the SW and a faint residual interacting feature at the opposite direction." The Sloan image shows a bright core with a faint elongated one to the northeast. I'd hoped to pick that up but seeing was poor. The Sloan image is at http://skyservice.pha.jhu.edu/DR9/ImgCutout/getjpeg.aspx?ra=255.8155992&dec=31.4580668&scale=0.1980635&width=800&height=800&opt=&query= . Also, due to clouds preventing me from being at the top of my game I forgot to turn on temperature compensation making things even worse. Still, I was able to pick up the "faint residual interacting feature", the northeast plume that is, fairly well. Transparency wasn't all that great this night either so I was surprised it came out as well as it did after I heavily enhanced the entire galaxy, not just the northeast plume. Comparing my enhanced version to the Sloan image it looks to me that I didn't add any false features.
