NGC 4085/88

On this page I collect my observations of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 4085 and the spiral galaxy NGC 4088 in the constellation Ursa Major.

 

Introduction

The barred spiral galaxy NGC 4085 and the spiral galaxy NGC 4088 in the constellation Ursa Major seem to interact with one another. At least, the deformations of galaxy NGC 4088 seem to indicate this. Both galaxies can be easily observed in the same field of view with the eVscope. By the way, NGC 4088 looks like a floating woman to me, that is why I call it "fairy galaxy". But on more detailed photos this impression disappears for me...
