NGC 2336

Where do you read the distance ?


The distance is listed in SIMBAD and NED. In SIMBAD you’d have to go to measurements, click the button, gives the distance in parsec. NED, you will lick Distances, it shows all distance measurements in parsec.

NGC 2715

Must be below 7.7 Mpc (25 MLY). If you look in simbad and hit select all measurements.

Ok sorry now I can read it !

Linking an image doesn’t seem to work for me though.

Click Discuss this object, then copy the text as it auto-generates the image for yoy, along with the link to the viewer. Go to the selected post, reply and paste your text. Therefore an image and link to the viewer will show up.
