Nearby S0 galaxy NGC1023, and it's dwarf companion NGC1023A. Taken with the 3.5meter WIYN telescope on Kitt Peak. I don't usually make color images with my data, but I wanted to see what detail I could get out of the dwarf, which has a fairly low surface brightness. I'm pleased with how this came out, though I could spend a little bit more time trying to clean it up.

Too much time spent trying to make pretty pictures today. Back to Science!
