NGC 7125 / 7126 in Indus

Full Frame

NGC 7125 and 7126 are 160 Million light years away so are quite small on the sky at under 3 arc min
in size each but they make for a nice photogenic pair of spiral galaxies. There are plenty of back
ground and much more distant galaxies sprinkled throughout the field too.
