Description

Abell 262 Galaxy cluster is a group of galaxis in about 220 Mio Lj distance. Beside the main group around NGC 708 are serveral other galaxies in the field.
NGC 708 has a small dark dust lane in the center which can be glimpsed! See the Hubble picture!
I made as well a wider fiedl picture with the Sharpstar which will follow later. The Size of the Galaxies is from 0,5 till 3 arcmin only.
Due to high clouds I had to delete about 1/3 of the pictures:-(
