NGC 3344

An inverted Image of the spiral galaxy NGC 3344 and its suspected dwarf companion NGC3444 dw1, marked by arrows. The image was obtained by G. Kerschhuber and M. Blauensteiner based on simultaneous data from four telescopes with a total exposure of 28.8 hours. The size of the fragment is 22′ × 16′. North is at the top, east is to the left. (Have also a look into the article “New Low Surface Brightness Dwarf Galaxies Detected Around Nearby Spirals” in the sub-page “publications in collaboration with the TBG Group”.)
