Interactions in Sextans

A favorite galaxy pair of mine showing gravitational interactions. This is the cropped version. NGC 3169 has a highly disrupted outer core and tidal tails pulled quite far from the galaxy. So many other faint PGC and un catalogued galaxies and galaxy clusters in the un- cropped field

Nice one, John! You’ve achieved wonderful detail in the galaxies themselves, and there are many faint ones in the background, as you said. Very nice color, too.



Beautiful image Jon, congratulations!
