Most distant "normal'' galaxy known, G 0102 190

This is an image of the most distant "normal'' galaxy known, G 0102 190, as seen on a CCD exposure obtained with the EFOSC II instrument at the ESO New Technology Telescope. The field measures arcsec; the brightest object is the quasar UM 669, whose image is strongly overexposed. G 0102 190 is the faint resolved object 4.8 arcsec south of the quasar image. Only the stellar component of the galaxy is seen; the continuum emission of the gaseous halo is much too faint to be detectable.
