NGC3169 and NGC3166

NGC 3169 


This nice pair of interacting galaxies NGC3169 and NGC3166 (plus the smaller NGC3165 to the right) is located in the constellation Sextans, some 8 degrees below Regulus and about 70 MLY from Earth.  This is my second attempt to show this group, now with Atik One6.. and (I hope) it is not so bad. The arrow above NGC 3169 points to a pretty bright quasar with z=3.983 !
