The Leo Triplet

This is the Leo Triplet; three galaxies about 35 million light years away.

To the left is NGC 3628 and to the right M66 and below is M65.

They are gravitationally interacting and M66 features a somewhat deformed spiral arm as a result of once being close to NGC 3628.

This is a 6 hour total exposure over three nights. 5 minute subs. Location central Lyon, France
