Description

This is such a nice duo and I am wondering why there are just a few other images of it on AB.

NGC 5364 (aka 5317) shows two massive arms with countless Ha-regions and NGC 5363 has a dark ring structure even visible with my aperture.

So this should be a treasure for appropriate telescopes.

I wasn't aware of that rich galaxy cluster near that duo. Otherwise I had changed the framing a little bit to get both in one picture.

I guess I have to come back and make up for it!
