Galaxy NGC 474, the large galaxy on the left, has quite an unusual shape including a very faint outer "halo". Its strange morphology is probably due to interaction with the galaxy to its upper right, which is NGC 470. At the right of the image is elliptical galaxy NGC 467, which is also somewhat asymmetrical and distorted, possibly by interaction with the small edge-on spiral just below it. At the bottom right are two more edge-on galaxies: PGC 4765 on the left, and the very blue PGC 4755 on the right. At the top center of the image is the trail of asteroid (9389) Crabbegat, which passed through the field of view during one capture session. In all this is a 10-hour image with 7:1:1:1 hours of L:R:G:B.
