Messier 105, NGC 3384, and NGC 3389 make up a nice trio of galaxies in the same view in the constellation Leo. The lower picture shows Messier 105 in the white circle, NGC 3384 in the black circle, and NGC 3389 in the white oval. These provide examples of three types of galaxies. Messier 105 is an elliptical galaxy; NGC 3384 is lenticular; and NGC 3389 is a spiral.

Messier 96 is another spiral galaxy in the constellation Leo. Although it’s hard to tell from this photo, its core is offset, indicating disturbance from nearby galaxies.
