NGC 3226 +3227

 

 

NGC 3227 and  NGC 3226 (or Arp 94) are two interacting galaxies in the constellation of Leo, next to Algieba. Their interaction produces interesting tidal tails around the system, which can be partly seen on the picture. 
I also like the small background galaxies and e.g the small pair at 4 o'clock position from the center even resembles the main galaxy pair.
In addition like in my recent NGC 4298+4302 picture a very distant quasar (marked with an arrow) with redshift larger than 4 (here z = 4.20) was clearly captured here.
