NGC 253 and NGC 288

NGC253, the galaxy above in the image, is about 11 million years away from us. The spiral galaxy has lots of dust in it. The globular cluster NGC288 in the lower part of the image is 1.8 degrees to the south of the NGC253. The stars are very dense in the core. Both objects are in the constellation Sculptor.
