NASA-LMT: BVR Broadband Composite Image NGC 3395 and 3396


A BVR Broadband composite of the interacting galaxy pair NGC 3395 (upper) and 3396 (lower) in Leo Minor.
The individual images were acquired with the NASA-LMT and PV 1K CCD through B,V, and R broadband
filters in 1999 and 2000. The galaxies have V magnitudes of 12.0 and 12.6 respectively. The limiting magnitude
for this frame at a SN ratio of 6.3 is approximately 22.0. West is up, North at left.
