NGC 4410/4411 Interacting Galaxy Groups

This complex field situated in the constellation Virgo shows a nice interacting group of galaxies.
The 4 connected galaxies NGC4410 A/B/C/ from right to left in the upper part of the image, are also  known as Markarian 1325. The distance to this galaxy group is 340 million light-years.

Below there are two nice face-on galaxies, cataloged as 4411A (right) and 4411B (left). Both are situated at a distance of approx. 50 million light-years
