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.
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.
