Arp 24 (NGC 3445)

  All three of the galaxies in the lower-left corner of the field are included in Arp 24.  In this case, the largest determines the classification, which is One-Armed Spirals.  The nearly edge-on galaxy near the top of the field is NGC 3440 and is not part of the Arp.

This image was taken in a very hazy sky, which is the reason for the high background noise.
