Default ASTRO: Arp 200

Information on the area of Arp 200, NGC 1134, is quite limited. Arp
classified it as "Galaxies not classifiable as S(piral) or E(lliptical):
material ejected from nuclei". I'm not all that sure what he is
referring to. There is a tidal splash coming from the north end of the
galaxy heading west toward UGC 02362. Then there's the odd arm on the
east side. At least it comes from the nucleus. But it doesn't appear to
be ejected, just a arm with bright knots. The galaxy at the bottom is
IC 0267. All three are related as they all lie at a distance of about
155 million light years. There's no information on the other galaxies
in the field as to distance. The only other galaxy of any size is LEDA
213115 to the west of UGC 02362. There are many distant galaxies in the
image but I couldn't find anything on them. Arp 200 is located in the
constellation of Aries.

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".

Very impressive image Rick. Very good detail, colours and quite a
spectacular object with it's drawn out arm.
