Arp 201

  Arp 201 is a member of the class Material Ejected from Nuclei.  The Atlas note says "VV connection between galaxies not seen here or on Survey prints".  VV refers to the Vorontsov-Velyaminov catalog, a Russian catalog of interacting galaxies which Dr. Arp referred to often.  The southern member of Arp 201 is UGC 224, while the northern is MCG+0-2-19.  A number of the faint background galaxies are in the APMUKS(BJ), an automated plate measuring catalog from the U.K., but none appear to show up in any of the more frequently used catalogs.  It looks to me like there is a galaxy cluster north and east of the bright star.

While my image is tiny and does not show a lot of detail, it shows about everything seen in the Atlas image.  The image is a combination of two taken a year apart.
