Nice image of a nice galaxy group, Gerhard. A web site that has a lot of information on galaxies is the NASA/IPAC Extragalatic Database. The URL is below. Give it a try..good luck.

Nice photo! I believe the "12763" is actually "IC 2763" according to Wikisky.org. The Caltech link from Bill indicates a distance of about 26 MPc which is about 83 million light years. Based on redshift. Seems from the photo like it is farther than that or else it is not a large galaxy.
