Arp 223 (NGC 7585)

 Arp 223 is another member of the class Amorphous Spiral Arms.  There was no Atlas note.  Arp 223 is the largest galaxy in the field, in the NE corner.  The smaller galaxy near the center of the field is NGC 7576. There are a number of faint background galaxies, including four MAC's. Megastar shows a quasar right on the southwest edge of the galaxy but there are not enough "roadmap" stars for me to tell whether it is visible or not.
