Arp 179 is the sperm-like object east, and a little south, of center. The
Atlas note is "condensed offset center". This is a screwy one. It is
wrong in NED and Megastar. Both of them identify the compact little galaxy
just west of center as Arp 179. It is not. Megastar has Arp 179
labeled as MAC 0302-0441 while NED shows a variety of catalog names for it, none
frequently used by amateurs.
This image is a combination of two images taken about a year apart. I did not line them up exactly the same and the image shape reflects the portions that overlapped.
