The Sculptor Galaxy, a bright intermediate spiral galaxy

NGC also known as the Sculptor Galaxy, is the brightest of the Sculptor Group of galaxies, found in the constellation of the same name, and lying approximately 13 million light-years

Point your telescope toward the high flying constellation Pegasus and you can find this expanse of Milky Way stars and distant galaxies. Centered on NGC 7814, the pretty field of view would almost be covered by a full moon. NGC 7814 is sometimes called the Little Sombrero for its resemblance to the brighter more famous M104, the Sombrero Galaxy.

also known as the Little Sombrero, is an edge-on spiral galaxy located about 40 million light-years from Earth toward the constellation Pegasus.

Spiral Galaxy NGC 253*

Measuring 70 000 light-years across and laying 13 million light-years away, the nearly edge-on spiral galaxy NGC 253

The Blinking Galaxy: NGC 6118, a grand-design spiral galaxy, shines bright in this image, displaying its central bar and tight spiral arms from its home in the constellation of Serpens (The Snake). The galaxy is sometimes known to amateur astronomers as the “Blinking Galaxy” because this relatively faint, fuzzy object would appear to flick into existence when viewed through their telescopes in a certain orientation, and then suddenly disappear again as the eye position shifted.

This grouping of five galaxies 280 million light-years away in the constellation Pegasus is known as Stephan's Quintet. Four of the five galaxies are experiencing a violent merger, where they crash into one another an eventually form one galaxy. Though it looks like the central blue galaxy is part of this clan, this is an illusion. It is actually a foreground galaxy only about 40 million light-years away.
