Galaxy NGC 7741 is a barred spiral galaxy of
type SB(s)cd, meaning that it has a central bar-like
concentration, evident here, and a small number of fairly open
large-scale spiral arms. The galaxy reaches about 50% further
out than this picture covers, so the outermost regions are not
visible. NGC 7741 is quite nearby, and is receding from us at
only 1.7 million miles per hour.
