Arp 112 (NGC 7805 & 6)

  Arp 112 is the last member of the class E and E-like Galaxies Repelling Spiral Arms.  Dr. Arp did not include any Atlas notes for this object.  NGC 7805 is the E-like object on the southwest corner of the group and NGC 7806 is the larger spiral in the middle.  The E-like galaxy is actually an early type spiral, having the classification SAB0:pec.  Finally, the small bent galaxy to the east, which looks like a leaping trout, is MCG +5-1-26.
