I'll contribute my latest pic. Arp 336 which has the rare characteristic of being a "polar ring" galaxy.

Taken with a C11 operating at f/11.4 (~3220mm) 12 x 10 min subs with a ST8-XME. A MI-250 fights the Earth's rotation. CCDAP5 let's me sleep.

Winter just will not let go this year in MN. Couple of rare, clear, moonless nights recently and the temp was a balmy 20 degrees ABOVE zero so it was time to get everything going again!

Arp's are fun to capture as they usually have some interesting shapes. A lot are small and challenging but that is part of the fun as well.
