AM 1316-241 is the name given to a pair of overlapping galaxies photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope. Notable for the visible dust revealed by the back light from the more distant galaxy. Until recently, the extensive dust far outside the visible portion of a galaxy was not known to exist.

It is believed these galaxies are also interacting.
