NGC4485 and NGC4490

In the constellation of Canes Venatici, one of my favorites for galaxy hunting, we find this interacting pair. These are easy to find and show for star parties.  I highly recommend them.

C14, ST7, 20m L, 8 min in each RGB

These galaxies can be found about 39 arc minutes west of the star Chara. They can be seen with moderate instruments but their true beauty shines with an aperture of at least 14 inches.
