Arp 149 (IC 803)

  Arp 149 is the first member of the class Galaxies with Jets.  The two edge-on galaxies, one due west of Arp149 almost to the edge of the field and the other southwest toward the bright star half off the field, are Mitchell Anonymous.  All the others appear to be completely anonymous, at least not listed in any of the commonly referenced catalogs.
