An intervening galaxy acts like a gravitational lens and produce multiple images of a single source such as a remote galaxy. Such galaxies have peculiar speeds in addition to the bulk motion appearing due to the expansion of the universe. There is a difference in light arriving time known as the time delay. We calculate more realistic time delays when such peculiar motions are taken into consideration.
