Arp 136 (NGC 5820)

  Arp 136 is the last member of the class E and E-like Galaxies with Nearby Fragments.  It is the bright galaxy closest to the center of the field.  To me, it looks like it belongs in the next class, Material Emanating from E Galaxies.  There is an obvious ejection of material from the southeast end of the galaxy.  The Atlas note says "faint streamers off one end of E galaxy. 

  The bright spiral northeast of Arp 136 is NGC 5821 and the very unusual LSB spiral in the southwest corner is UGC 9632.  For a detail image of this object, see Extras.

There is a very bright double just off the east edge of the field.
