Ring Galaxy (NGC7217)

Located in the constellation of Pegasus and about 50m light years distant is the 11th magnitude ring galaxy NGC7217.  Simulations indicate that the formation can be explained by the collision of a two galaxies: a compact galaxy with a larger spiral.   However, today, it has no nearby companions and appears to float isolated in space. The LRGB image was taken with my Esprit 150 and represents just over 11 hours integration time.
