- Thin Galaxies (Sex) -

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.

120mm f/5, 75x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
Conditions in the target region: SQM-L 20.5
Towards horizon the sky was unfortunately a bit hazy. Difficult to held. Just a very faint, elongated, thin glow.

DIFFICULT
8" f/6, 80x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.0
Conditions in the target region: SQM-L 20.7
Quite high surface brightness, somewhat evident, thin and very elongated with tapering endings.

MODERATE

bei 72x ist die Superthin sofort direkt sichtbar - ein zarter OW-elongierter Strich - Ausdehnung 6:1 - bei 160x wird die Galaxie noch deutlicher und bleibt auf der gesamten Länge sehr flach und homogen hell - das Highlight der Beobachtungsnacht
