NGC 7640 in Andromeda

NGC 7640 is a mag 11.5 bright SBc-type galaxy in the con­stel­la­tion of Andromeda with an appar­ent size of 10’x2.2′. The shape of the spir­al arms clearly shows the clas­si­fic­a­tion of SB, but it appers to have under­gone grav­it­a­tion­al inter­ac­tion in the past. The dis­tance is estim­ated to be around 28 mil­lion lightyears, while the phys­ic­al dia­met­er is 90’000 lightyears.
