Description

Information about Abell 1656 (Source Wikipedia):

The Coma Cluster (Abell 1656) is a large cluster of galaxies that contains over 1,000 identified galaxies.

The cluster’s mean distance from Earth is 99 Mpc (321 million light years). Its ten brightest spiral galaxies have apparent magnitudes of 12–14. The central region is dominated by two supergiant elliptical galaxies: NGC 4874 and NGC 4889. The cluster is within a few degrees of the north galactic pole on the sky. Most of the galaxies that inhabit the central portion of the Coma Cluster are ellipticals. Both dwarf and giant ellipticals are found in abundance in the Coma Cluster.
