NGC4274

NGC 4274 is a compact spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices.  It is at an angle from our viewpoint that gives it a Saturn-like ringed appearance.  A fainter cloud of stars can be seen in this image extending beyond the compact spiral arms.  This composite of 19, ten-second images was taken on 5 June 1997.
