The Sombrero Galaxy - discovered to actually be two galaxies in one: A large elliptical galaxy, with a disk galaxy inside.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has picked up the faint, ghostly glow of stars ejected from ancient galaxies that were gravitationally ripped apart several billion years ago. The mayhem happened 4 billion light-years away, inside an immense collection of nearly 500 galaxies nicknamed “Pandora’s Cluster,” also known as Abell 2744.

The Dumbbell Nebula ✨ (Apple Core Nebula/M27/NGC 6853) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, at a distance of about 1,360 light-years. It was the first planetary nebula to be discovered; by Charles Messier in 1764. At its brightness of visual magnitude and its diameter, it is easily visible in binoculars, and a popular observing target in amateur telescopes. #dumbbellnebula #applecorenebula #vulpecula #constellation #m27 #nebula #nebulae #planetarynebula #messier #messier27…

This picture, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope's WFPC2, shows a galaxy known as NGC 6872 in the constellation of Pavo (The Peacock). Its unusual shape is caused by its interactions with the smaller galaxy that can be seen beside NGC 6872.

NGC 7049 : Spiral Galaxy - The rope-like dust ring stands out against the starlight behind it and has relatively few globular clusters. It spans around 150,000 light-years and is about 100 million light-years away in the constellation Indus. NGC 7049 is the brightest cluster galaxy (BCG) in the Indus Triplet (NGC 7029, NGC 7041, NGC 7049) bright star on ring is in Milky Way - NASA/ESA/W Harris (McMaster Univ., Ontario, Canada)
