M95, NGC3351

January 26, 2005
The SBb barred spiral galaxy M95, possibly ringed, is a member of the Leo I galaxy grouping, which includes M96, and M105, as well as various NGC and other galaxies, all at a distance of about 38 million light-years. This picture was taken in February 1996 at the KPNO 0.9-meter telescope. The inset in the top right corner shows the fascinatingly complex structure of the innermost regions.
