Peter Feltoti NGC 7331 and Stephan's quintet

NGC 7331 and Stephan’s Quintet, by Peter Feltóti

NGC 7331 and Stephan’s quintet lies in the constellation Pegasus. If we look at that part of the sky, we don’t only see just a few galaxies, but dozens of them, even through a faint layer of integrated flux nebula which surrounds Milky Way. NGC7331 is the spiral galaxy on the right and NGC7317-7318A-7318B-7319-7320 on the left is the quintet, 4 of them are interacting galaxies, which forms the most compact known galaxy group.
