    This beautiful clump of glowing gas, dark dust, and glittering stars is the spiral galaxy NGC 4248, located ~ 24 million ly away in the constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs).

    ~ 95 million ly away, in the southern constellation of Octans, lies an intriguing spiral galaxy NGC 7098 — with numerous sets of double features.
    The small, edge-on, spiral galaxy visible to the left of NGC 7098, is ESO 048-G007.

    Located ~ 24 million ly away in the direction of the constellation Canes Venatici, M63 (NGC 5055) is a large spiral galaxy with a beautiful spiral. It's also nicknamed the Sunflower Galaxy because the balanced whirlpool structure reminds us of a large flower.

    Wide-field image shows the sky around the two interacting galaxies NGC 1512 and NGC 1510. NGC 1512 is clearly visible in the very centre of the image.
