Description

Yes I know, the framing is quite odd, but what else could I do when I got the idea of getting these two galaxies into the same field of view.

Just did a galaxy annotation (version B) in PI and found that there are 50+ (lost count) more distant galaxies in between the two closer ones (and I can see a few more not annotated). So maybe the framing is ok?
