Hercules Galaxies Cluster
Although not very pretty picture, this image shows a cluster of galaxies in the constellation Hercules. These galaxies are interacting and move as a group. The most amazing thing about this photo is the distance to those galaxies. The group is about 500 MILLION light years away. This is the farthest object I have imaged.
