Galactic Duo NGC 3169 and NGC 3166
This sequence starts with a wide-field view of the prominent constellation of Leo (The Lion). As we zoom in many fainter stars become visible as well as a few of the many galaxies in this part of the sky. In the final sequence we close in on the pair of galaxies NGC 3169 and NGC 3166.
