NGC 7741 is a barred spiral galaxy located in the constellation Pegasus. It is located at a distance of ~40 million light years from Earth,

which, given its apparent dimensions, means that NGC 7741 is about 50,000 light years across.

It was discovered by William Herschel on September 10, 1784.


NGC 7741 has a strong bar and two spiral arms. The spiral arms are patchy and diffuse with a (red) HII region visible in this image.

There are a lot of smaller background galaxies visible in the image as well.
