Abell 1060 - Hydra Cluster

The largest spiral galaxy in the Hydra Cluster is NGC3312, which is located 194 million light years from Earth, and spans itself for 171,000 light years. To give you some perspective of how big and how far this galaxy is:
Photographing such a big object located that far away, is the same as photographing a 2 meter tall person 2 kilometers away. Or, the same as photographing a 10 centimeter pen 113 meters away.
