Arp 202 (NGC 2719 & A)

  Arp 202 is in the class Material Ejected from Nuclei, and is the galaxy pair several minutes west and south of center.  The Atlas note says "faint tail from smaller galaxy", and it is very faint.  I have to struggle to detect it in the Atlas image.  In the heavily processed detail image below, it looks more like a string of discrete objects than a tail.  It is the chain of three objects beginning at the NW end of the secondary and heading WNW.  The Atlas image also appears to have some gaps.  The primary is NGC 2719 and the small lumpy secondary just below it is 2719A. 

The beautiful barred spiral near the left side of the field is NGC 2724.  A detail image of this object can be seen on the Extras page.
