Abell 2151 is as well called the Hercules Cluster. This cluster is in a distance of about 500 Mio Lj.
The most prominent galaxies ar the elliptical NGC 6041 at the right side. Above is the Galaxy 6040 A+b which are about to merge. At the lower side of the picture are the two galaxies IC 1178 and 1181. This two galaxies made several turns together and have a big halo. IC 1182 is at the left side and has a long tidal tail - very interesting!
In the center of the field is NGC 6050 and IC 1179 - two galaxies which merge. They are as well listed as ARP 272. Above is NGC 6045 with a companion which is called as well ARP 71.
There are plenty of other galaxies in the field of view.
