Arp 175 (IC 3481 & 3)

  Arp 175 is another member of the class Narrow Counter-Tails.  The Atlas note says "can see connection only 2/3 way to SE galaxy".  I can't see it that far, either in my image or the Atlas image.  For me, it extends just slightly past the small middle galaxy.  The northwest galaxy is IC 3481, the small one about 2 minutes southeast is IC 3481A, and the one just below the bright star is IC 3483.
