- Thin Galaxies (Leo) -

Here I will present some quite thin galaxies with an axis ratio of at least 1:5. Nevertheless this value is calculated from the given angular size, so the visual impression can differ.

IC610 (GLX)

../dss/dss2blue_102628.36_+201341.71_5_web.jpg
Image source: DSS II (blue) - 5×5'
Name: IC610, IC611, UGC5653
Type: GLX
Constellation: Leo
Coordinates: 10h26m28.36s / +20°13'41.71"
Brightness / Size: b14.8 mag / 1.9x0.3'
8" f/6, 171x, Bortle 4
Extremely thin, very elongated, evenly bright. Seems a little bit harder than UGC3697 (Integral Sign Galaxy).
DIFFICULT
