Galaxy NGC 5701

Galaxy NGC 5701

CCD Image of the rather unusual Galaxy NGC 5701 in the Constellation Virgo. The inner parts seem to be a barred Lenticular, while the galaxy is surrounded by a faint ring, with H II regions, similar to the arms of a spiral galaxy. There are two small anonymous galaxies in the image, one is superimposed on NGC 5701.

This is a 12 Minute exposure using an SBIG ST-6 CCD camera thru Kopernik's 20 inch telescope (working at F/4.9). North at top; the field of view is about 9x12.5 arc minutes.

This is the data on NGC 5701:
