Coma Cluster

It’s been over three years since I pictured Abell 1656 Coma Cluster of galaxies in the astrojolo Deep Field One¬†entry. This cluster is about 320 million light years away and is dominated by two supergiant elliptical galaxies. This to the left is NGC4889 – real monster. Its central part is about 240 000 light years in diameter, that is a size of whole Milky Way. However outer faint halo extends to 1.3 million light years, and NGC4889 mass is estimated to be a thousand times more than our Galaxy.
This time is in the wider context. TS130/910 0.79x, Atik383, EQ6, suburban sky:
