Arp 109 is the first of the classification E or E-like Galaxies Repelling Spiral
Arms. The two larger galaxies, and two tiny ones, near the center of the
field make up the Arp field but I believe that only the larger two are considered
to be the Arp itself. There are quite a few other galaxies in the field,
the largest being IC 1146 near the bottom.
The diffraction spikes on the bright star are doubled because I combined two images made with slightly different alignments.
