NGC 5297 (UGC 8709 and others) is a large spiral interacting with NGC 5269 (PGC 48811 and others), a smaller spiral below and to the right (west). These galaxies are located approximately 100 million light-years away (https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1086/661920/pdf) in Canes Venatici.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

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

 

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

 

Imaged April 20th and 22nd, 2020 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.
