Gallery of Distant Background Galaxies

This image is a collage of some of the inummerable distant background galaxies and clusters present in the Antennae Galaxies Extreme Deep Field - 75 Hours. These background galaxies are so distant that their light is visibly reddened because of the cosmological redshift. In fact, the entire background is littered with such distant background galaxies, and many of these can be seen through the two tidal streams and also through the extended shells and halos of the colliding galaxies. Judged by their colour and apparent size the faintest of these remote galaxy clusters lie several billion light years away.
