NGC 5866 (M 102 ?)
M 102 is a galaxy listed in the Messier Catalogue that has not been identified unambiguously. Its original discoverer Pierre Méchain later said that it was a duplicate observation of Messier 101, but there are historical reasons to believe that it could be NGC 5866. This image shows NGC 5866, which is a lenticular galaxy in the constellation Draco.
