4/13/05 M98 and Abel 1449 Galaxy Cluster in Coma Bernices

M98 is located in a field of other galaxies, with the Abel 1449 galaxy cluster located in the bottom left of this image, surrounding a relatively bright galaxy I believe is designated UGC 7240. UGC 7240 is actually a spiral galaxy but I was unable to pull out any of it's structure in this image. In fact there are galaxies just about everywhere you look in this field. I wanted to include the Abel cluster, hence the somewhat odd framing of this shot.
