Arp 177

  Arp 177 is in the class Narrow Counter-Tails, but none look particularly narrow to me.  The Atlas note says "very small plume comes off comp. galaxy opposite larger".  That plume is easy to see.  The Arp was offset to the southwest to include UGC 9606 at the top.  This is one of the skinniest galaxies I've observed.
