Arp 11

  Arp 11 includes the entire group of galaxies near the center of the field.  However, it is included in the Split Arm class and a split arm is found only on the largest galaxy (UGC 717).  Dr. Arp's Atlas note was "position of larger spiral.  Outer arms do not start at termination of bar".  I don't know what he meant by the first phrase.
