Spiral Galaxy MCG 7-34-15:
This face-on barred spiral galaxy is in the constellation of Corona Borealis. A rough distance estimate for this galaxy is 560 million light years, and at that distance, the diameter would be 130,000 light years. Note the Kopernik image also shows the even more distant spiral galaxy MCG 7-34-13.
