Arp 124 (NGC 6361)

  Arp 124 is in the class E-like Galaxies Perturbing Spirals.  The primary is NGC 6361 and the E-like companion, which is just south of the southwest tip of the primary, is MCG+10-25-3.

This isn't the best but it is one of my better Cookbook images.  The northern sky was active the night it was acquired, as I saw a bright (-2 mag.) meteor in Draco, heading just east of Polaris, and an Iridium flare below and east of Polaris.
