NGC 6744 is an intermediate spiral galaxy about 30 million light-years away in the constellation Pavo. It is thought to be one of the most Milky Way-like spiral galaxies in our immediate vicinity. It also has at least one distorted companion galaxy (NGC 6744A), which is visible to the northwest in the above image.
