Arp 222 (NGC 7727)













  10-inch Newtonian, StarlightXpress MX716, 30 minutes

  Arp 222 continues the class Amorphous Spiral Arms.  The Atlas note is redundant, "amorphous arms".  The arms east and west of the center, and the loop on the SSW, are faint and difficult.  The arms show up best in the false color image, while the loop is easier in the images above.
