NGC2336 is a medium-sized spiral galaxy in northern region of Camelopardalis. The galaxy has been positioned in declination of plus 80 degrees, we can observe it all the year round, but I have classified it as a galaxy in spring for the sake of convenience. NGC2336 has a long axis of over 7 arc minutes, we can appreciate its clear arms in long exposed photographs. And you can see another tiny spiral of IC467 in 7 arc minutes south of NGC2336.
