Description

A challenging little target, but well worth the effort. This galaxy seems to have been warped by interacting smaller galaxies that are seen around it. Located in the constellation Aries, I was surprised to see a bit of IFN coming through on the image. Perhaps a deeper exposure is in order in the future...
