Arp 213 (IC 356, UGC 2953 and others) is a spiral galaxy located approximately 53.8 million light-years away in Camelopardalis. Much like IC 342, this one is obscured by the arms of our own galaxy. Because of this, Arp added it to his Irregularities, Absorption and Resolution class.

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

Imaged October 24th and 25th, 2017 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.
