NGC 2997

This is one of the first CCD images taken at ESO. It was obtained in the V filter, with the CCD camera at the 1.5-metre Danish Telescope at La Silla Observatory. NGC 2997 is a beautiful galaxy and a typical Sc type with two dominant arms. In spite of some ramifications, both arms can be traced for a full revolution. The present picture was made from three overlapping CCD frames and the colours show the intensity contours.
