Arp 147 (IC 298 & A)

  Arp 147 is another of the class Galaxies with Associated Rings.  It's very similar to Arp 146 in orientation and size.  Both members are IC galaxies.  All the other galaxies recognizable in the field, including the irregular or spiral right on the diffraction spike of the brightest star, are Mitchell Anonymous.  Both Arp 147 and the galaxy on the spike can be seen a bit better in the 2X detail.
