Palomar Compact Galaxy Groups

Two more distant galaxy groups, this time from Leo Minor. I like to visit these groups as an antidote to the bright DSOs. The distances are mind  boggling.

This little group has little info, one of the group is 2.1 billion lyrs away, The labelled PGC galaxy is around the 5 billion mark.


One of this little group is at about 2.5 billion lyrs away (another in the group is only 750 million lyrs away) and I counted a further 10 fuzz spots that are greater than 2 billion lyrs away.
