Arp 140 (NGC 275 & 274)
Arp 140 is in the class Material Emanating from E Galaxies. The E galaxy
is NGC 274 and the unusual galaxy southeast of it is NGC 275. In the Atlas
image, it looks somewhat like a barred spiral but the emission regions stand out
so strongly in my image that the barred spiral appearance is lost.
The Cookbook image that was replaced by this new one can be seen on the Extras page.
