NGC3184 is a relatively large (7.8'x7.2'), face-on spiral with low surface brightness (mag 9.8 overall, SB14.0). Still, imaged under reasonably dark skies, it shows remarkable beauty and detail in its spiral arms! This galaxy is located in the constellation of Ursa Major, the Big Dipper. This was taken at the March 02 CFAS Astrofest.
