  1. Nice detail with NGC 604. The arms are well defined. I can imagine it was quite the sight to see through the eyepiece, especially with a 16” catadioptric. It’s neat you were able to observe an H II region in the Triangulum Galaxy — strange that it’s more apparent than the core.

  2. Thanks for commenting, FlyTrapMan! The HII area is much more smaller than the core of it’s host galaxy, and that’s why it’s light is much more condensed, whereas the light of the core of the galaxy is scattered to much more larger area, and thus it’s surface brightness is much more smaller. This one was indeed a really interesting object to observe!
