The Arp in this image is a little below center and
about halfway to the west (right) edge. Arp 148 is in the class Galaxies
with Associated Rings. The Atlas note says "known as Mayall's object."
The moderately bright galaxy due east of Arp 148, about half a field away, is
CGCG 213-35. All the other visible galaxies are Mitchell Anonymous.
There are a lot of them.
This image was taken at the Texas Star Party in 2006.
