Arp 146 is the tiny pair in the center of the field. It's a member of the
class Galaxies with Associated Rings. It is a neat little object that
would obviously benefit from a longer focal length telescope. My picture
is pretty sharp but some of the features only cover a couple of pixels. If
you look very closely, you can see the arm hooking down from the galaxy
away from the ring. It can be better seen in the 3x detail image below and easily seen in the Atlas image.
