NASA-LMT: BVR Broadband Composite Image of NGC 3424 and 3430


A BVR Broadband composite of the galaxy pair NGC 3424 (upper) and 3430 (lower).
The individual images were imaged 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
13.2 and 11.5 respectively. The fainter galaxies are un-catalogued (NC). The limiting
magnitude for this frame at a SN ratio of 6.3 is approximately 22.0. West is up, North
at left.
