Wide-field view of the sky around the Meathook galaxy

This visible-light wide-field image of the region around the deformed spiral galaxy NGC 2442 was created from photographs taken through red and blue filters and forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2. The object itself, nicknamed the Meathook Galaxy, is close to the centre and many other galaxies are visible in this wide field view that spans about three degrees of sky.
