Dusty Galaxy Group NGC7770 & NGC7771
This interacting group of galaxies reside behind an amazing amount of foreground dust. This high latitude dust reflects the light from our own galaxy. This dust makes color changes by scattering light, especially blue light making image processing a challenge. This dust is very faint and I enhanced it to make it easier to see it’s interesting structures. This image was selected by NASA for The Astronomy Picture Of the Day.
I also processed this image without enhancing the dust to reveal the galaxy details. You can see the zoomable image HERE.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look, any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
