NGC 253 is a spiral galaxy in the Sculptor constellation.
It is the main galaxy of the cluster of galaxies called the Sculptor Group which is relatively close to the Local Group to which the Milky Way belongs.
The Leo triplet
The Leo triplet or M 66 group consists of three spiral galaxies about 35 million light years away: the galaxy M 65 (NGC 3623) at the top right, the galaxy M 66 (NGC 3627) at the bottom right and the galaxy NGC 3628 at the bottom left.
NGC 2903 is a barred spiral galaxy about 25 milions of light year from the Earth in the constellation of Leo.
NGC 891 is a spiral galaxy viewed from the edge in the constellation Andromeda; it is also possible to observe the lane of dark dust that crosses it in half.
M 33 or NGC 598 is a spiral galaxy in the constellation of the Triangle; it is relatively close to us and its apparent size is greater than that of the Moon, but it is almost impossible to see it with the naked eye due to its low brightness.
M 100 or NGC 4321 is a spiral galaxy of the Virgo cluster at 55 milion of light years from us.
In the photo near to M 100 you can see NGC 4323 and NGC 4328 that are two satellite galaxies of M 100 as highlighted in the second photo.
