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