NGC4567 - Butterfly Galaxies

NGC 4567 and NGC 4568 (nicknamed the Siamese Twins or the Butterfly Galaxies) are a set of spiral galaxies about 60 million light-years away in Virgo. They were both discovered by William Herschel in 1784. They are in the process of colliding and merging with each other.

Taken with reasonable guiding but poor seeing conditions using a Skywatcher clear sky filter. For more details the astrobin link is: http://www.astrobin.com/248908/
