Default ASTRO: UGC 672 and a hint of Andromeda X

Cleaning out the hard drive I'm finding things I'd processed, wasn't
happy with and forgot. This is one of them. In the center is the dwarf
elliptical galaxy UGC 672. Some say it has interacted with NGC 258 (a
interesting target still on my to-do list) others say that's hogwash. I
can't find a good distance for it. Some say 15 million light years
others almost double that, yet others say it is a member of the local
group putting it even closer. Red shift at such a distance isn't all
that reliable but would say about 20 million to round it out. It is the
faint blue thing with a foreground star in the center.

At the very bottom a tad left of center is the location of Andromeda X
A handful of its faint stars may be in the image or they may be
foreground stars. I am not sure.

14" LX200R @ f/10, L=4x10', RGB=2x10', STL-11000XM, Paramount ME

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".

Nice image Rick! That is an odd one.

Rick, quite an elusive target. Good shooting.
