NGC 5371 and Hickson 68 - Big Lick Galaxy Group

NGC 5371 


Hickson 68  (NGC 5350, 5353, 5354, 5355 and 5358) represents one of the brighter Hickson compact galaxy groups. Well resolved spiral NGC 5350 makes this group even rather photogenic.
Like its nice (and big) neighbour, spiral galaxy
NGC 5371,
it is  located 100 million light years from Earth and can be found in the constellation Canes Venatici, 8 degrees southeast of M51.
