I found this galaxy to be very interesting looking in it's structure. This is another one that I will look to continue to image in the future under better conditions! I'm somewhat shocked to get as much detail as I did through the light pollution. It's a barred spiral galaxy, and you can somewhat make out the bar in my image. By pulling out the fainter detail, I sort of hid the bar in the mess of noise at the center of the galaxy. NGC 2903 is considered a field galaxy, meaning it's gravitaionally alone, not belonging to a galaxy group or cluster.
