Arp 121

  Arp 121 is in class E-like Galaxies Perturbing Spirals.  The Atlas note says "E galaxy warping spiral".  That is easily seen.  The Atlas image shows some absorption which is not seen in my image, perhaps because of scale or perhaps red versus blue sensitivity.

There are three tiny edge-on galaxies in the right half of this image.
