NGC 797 (UGC 1541, PGC 7832, VV 428, MCG+06-05-078 and others) is a face-on spiral interacting with MCG+06-05-078b (NGC 797b, VV 428b and others).

 

NGC 801 (UGC 1550, PGC 7847 and others) is an AGN galaxy located above NGC 797.

 

Information on both of these is parse and all over the place. Estimates put these between 160 and 260 million light-years away in Andromeda.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2
