NGC 48 (UGC 133, PGC 929 and others) is the spiral at the center of the image located approximately 79 million light-years away in Andromeda.

NGC 49 (UGC 136, PGC 952 and others) is the galaxy to the left (east) of NGC 48. It is located approximately 214 million light-years away.

NGC 51 (UGC 138, PGC 974 and others) is the galaxy to the left of NGC 49. It is located approximately 239 million light-years away.

This field contains several other galaxies including IC 1534, 1535 and 1536, from right to left below the NGCs.

Luminance – 28x600s – 280 minutes – binned 1x1

NGC 51, though much further away than NGC 48, appears to have a wider spread in the outer reaches of the galaxy. At least that is what appears in the image.

Nice capture.
