3953 is a barred spiral with ring - SB(.r)bc - although the ring seems a bit weak to me. Its distance is about 57 million light years. It is joined in this field by MCG+90-20-23 and MGC+90-20-23 - the latter SB(rs)m also barred is about 55 million light years distant.
This field has many background galaxies (more readily seen in the full size zoom-able image). They range from 435 to 1,076 million light years. Further distant are some visible Quasars - they range from 5.85 to 11.36 billion years light travel time (Lookback).

image and details can be accessed at the links below (or by clicking on the image below). The annotated image has a link below but it can also be accessed from the main image webpage as well - or seen on astrobin. The full resolution image has an image scale of about 0.58 arcsec/pixel.
Full size and annotated images have a pan and zoom feature on my website.
