M105, NGC 3384 and 3389

M105 and its companion, NGC 3384, are two galaxies that are roughly 30-35 million light years from earth.   NGC 3389, the smaller of the three, is at a much greater distance.  They can be found in the constellation of Leo in the same region as the messier objects M95 and M96.
