Arp 293 consists of NGC 6285 (PGC 59344 and others) located above NGC 6286 (UGC 10647 and others). On the right (west) side of the image, these are part of Arp’s ‘Double Galaxies – Wind Effects’ class and located approximately 260 million light-years away in Draco.

 

UGC 10641 is the edge-on galaxy below Arp 293.

 

NGC 6290 (UGC 10665 and others) is the odd spiral on the left side located approximately 247 million light-years away. It is located above NGC 6291.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

Dan,

 

Nice image. As you can probably guess from my photos I prefer more color, but nice detail for such small galaxies.
