Description

NGC660 is a Polar ring Galaxy in Pisces Constellation far approximately 45 million light years from us.
The polar ring Galaxy are extremely rare object and NGC660 is also part of M74 group ....I was also surprise from the high number of galaxy's on the background

LRGB picture not in the best condition (due humidity and unstable sky) but in the end i'm happy of the result.
