This is a lesser known galaxy pair that I stumbled upon and decided to
image. The larger galaxy at the bottom is NGC4517. It is an edge on spiral
galaxy. Its sister galaxy at the top is NGC4517A and is a face on spiral
galaxy. This is an interesting pair because you get an edge on and face on
spiral galaxy in the same image. There are lots of other smaller galaxies as
well. These galaxies are about 32 million light years away in the
constellation Bootes. Comments and suggestions welcomed.
