Hubble: Spirals
« on: May 04, 2010, 07:50:06 pm »
In the main Hubble Discussion thread there was talk of creating a Hubble spirals thread but none eventuated.  As a newbie who came late to ZOO-2 but who thoroughly enjoyed himself classifying more than 5000 galaxies in the final month at ZOO-2 without posting any images, I enjoy finding spirals.

The increased complexity of classifying Hubble galaxies slowed me down and led to my making increasing use of this  Forum and the excellent help and information available. Thanks heaps to all contributors.

Spirals probably mean more to NEWBIE members than HERO members who seek more exotic fare. 
So perhaps it should be a NEWBIE to start this thread?  Please post any Hubble spirals you find here.

As inspiration for this move I must thank 'Astronomers Hero member' NGC3314 who's Forum name inspired me to explore NGC3314 in Google Earth-Sky.  What an astounding awe inspiring pair of galaxies that is. 
A giant spiral galaxy sawing into another even larger galaxy almost at right angles. I was enthralled  :o

That then must be the aim of this  thread, to discover spirals even more amazing than NGC3314  ;)

Here is my first (of 16) Hubble spiral contribution, not quite as gripping as NGC3314 but different to those I found in ZOO-2.  Has anyone found two of these chopping themselves up?
