captured NGC 4088 (Halifax)

BGO imaged NGC 4088 for me. A galaxy in Ursa Major. One of the RASC Finest NGCs. Seems twisted.

RASC Finest galaxy NGC 4088 luminance

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, GIMP. North is up; east is left.

South of the main galaxy is another edge-on. Small NGC 4085.

LEDA 2372650 is to the south-east, near star J120605.0+502706.

Further, near the edge of the image, is LEDA 2371976. A small bright oval.

A soft round fuzzy appears south-east of the main galaxy: MCG 9-20-92.
