Arp 203 (NGC 3712)

  NGC 203 is a member of the class Material Ejected from Nuclei.  The Atlas note is "faint plumes coming off both ends of bar".  In this case, both the class and note are quite obvious, and the plumes are far more obvious in my image than in the Atlas image.  The galaxy southeast of Arp 203 is MAC 1131+283.

This image was acquired at the Texas Star Party in 2006, and really needs more exposure.  The background is very noisy.
