Arp 241

  Arp 241 is another in the Appearance of Fission class, and there is no Atlas note.  The pair is also cataloged as UGC 9425.  This field has an amazing density of background galaxies.  Almost the entire field except for the northeast corner falls within at least one Abell Galaxy Cluster, and the field south and west from a point just northeast of Arp 241 consists of two overlapping clusters, 1941 and 1944.
