Arp 151

  Arp 151 is to the right of center, just below the brightest star.  The star makes imaging it a challenge.  Arp 151 is in the class Galaxies with Jets.  It's a very strange object and of great interest to professional astronomers.  Late in 2006, there were 122 references to it in NED, far more than found for many larger, more impressive objects.
