Arp 23 (NGC 4618 & 4625)

  Both NGC 4618 and the companion NGC 4625 are included in the Arp field.  Arp 23 is in the One-Armed Spiral Galaxy class and, somewhat surprisingly, both galaxies appear to be one-armed.  Except for the tiny Mitchell Anonymous galaxy between them, this is a pretty barren field.

This image was taken with a borrowed MX916 camera and has the larger field which that camera provides.  The Atlas field is a little larger, 17' x 22', but there is nothing of interest in the edges that were lost.
