Yours truly

NGC  7331  and  The  Deer  Lick  Group,  

in  Pegasus

   The large spiral galaxy is NGC 7331 and the smaller one above and to the left is NGC 7337, the one above and slightly to the right is NGC 7335. Just to the right of 7335 is NGC 7336. 7331 measures about 11 x 4 arcmin. I have no idea why the groups is called "the deer lick group."  North is to the right in this image.
