The SBb barred spiral galaxy M95, possibly ringed, is a member of the Leo I galaxy grouping, which includes M96, and M105, as well as various NGC and other galaxies, all at a distance of about 38 million light-years. This picture was taken in December 1994 at the KPNO 0.9-meter telescope and shows the fainter outer regions of the galaxy, as well as various small faint background galaxies. A different view at higher resolution also shows the complex inner structure. Image size 7.9x12.5 arc minutes.
