Astrophoto Friday: Spiral Galaxy NGC 7217

This week we have another vintage photo for Astrophoto Friday. It is a picture of a spiral galaxy known as NGC 7217 that was taken with the 200-inch Hale Telescope by Edwin Hubble the night of October 13, 1950.

NGC 7217 is located about 50 million light years distant in the direction of the constellation of Pegasus.
