NGC 450

The galaxy pair NGC 450/UGC 807 is noteworthy for dramatically diferent redshifts (1900 and 11600 km/s). The colors of the galaxies are especially well shown here, with some contrast due to their rather different Hubble types. Two sets of authors have used this pair to set limits on the amount of widespread dust in the outer disk of NGC 450. The data were obtained by W. Keel and R. White, III, at the Cerro Tololo 1.5-meter telescope.
