Arp 181 (NGC 3212 & 3215)

  Arp 181 is in the class Narrow Filaments.  The western galaxy is NGC 3212 and the other is NGC 3215.  The Atlas note says "long faint filament extends westward from south arm.  This refers to NGC 3212 and is quite visible in this image.  One of the "missing" NGC objects, NGC 3210, is located about 2' northwest of NGC 3212.  It is certainly missing from this image.
