Arp 174 (NGC 3068)
Arp 174 is in the class Narrow Counter-Tails. The Atlas note is "smaller
galaxy very condensed." In fact, except for a tiny bit of fuzz, it could
pass for a star. The galaxy near the bottom of the field is Mitchell
The tail on Arp 174 is extremely faint, just a barely detectable glow. This was the longest exposure in my initial set of images, 84 minutes, but has since been exceeded by other images.
