About this image

When imaging a few of the galaxies in the Sculptor Group with the intention of picking up some of their GCs I decided to take a snapshot of NGC 288 while I was in the district.

Note the 15th-magnitude barred spiral galaxy PGC 3068 near the right edge of the image. It is not a member the Sculptor Group, being much more distant than them.
