Here is my attempt to image NGC 2683 and some of the surrounding galaxies. Most of these distant galaxies are magnitude 18 or fainter. Located in the constellation Lynx, it is similar to our own galaxy as seen nearly edge on. NGC 2683 is thought to be between 16-24 mly away. A much closer and more
detailed shot of this galaxy can be found on the March cover of Sky & Telescope magazine.
