NGC 2403 Galaxy

Took this one along with the Thors Helmet Nebula last night but had to wait some time for the moon to go down before it was dark enough to pick up this lovely galaxy just near M81 and M82

NGC 2403 is an intermediate spiral galaxy in the constellation Camelopardalis. NGC 2403 is an outlying member of the M81 Group, and is approximately 8 million light-years distant.
