Arp 169 (NGC 7236 & 7)

  Arp 169 is in the class Diffuse Counter-Tails.  The Atlas note says "faint diffuse plumes coming away from two galaxies", and those can be seen in my image.  Arp 169 is the pair a little to the northeast of center.  The upper member is NGC 7236 and the lower is NGC 7237.  The diffuse galaxy with the bright core, south of the center, is CGCG 428-57.
