Hi,

another nice framed image, three very different galaxies. Note the fuzzies around ngc 5982 (in the center).

Is this a composite? or are these all in one field of view? (I am a total layman)

I am intrigued by the row of 4 stars in the bottom left hand corner. What are they....galactic traffic lights.

Thanks again for appreciating the image!

Eric, this is actually no composit, those galaxies are infact that close. At least, when seen from earth, I don't know if those are real cosmic companions.

Having three very different galaxy types close to each other in one field of view makes that area one of the most interesting in the skies, I think.

Regards,
Stefan

I don't think they can be located at the exactly same distance from us, if they were that close each other they would be distorted. From a different location they wouldn't look so close group. But that doesn't mean they don't belong to the same group.
