Arp 25 (NGC 2276)
is one of the "twofers" for most imagers. Arp 25 is the spiral near the
bright star. The combination of it and the elliptical toward the southeast corner of the field is Arp
114. Arp 25 has a separate image in the Atlas and is in the One Heavy Arm
For me, none of the arms in Arp 25 seem significantly heavier than some of the
others, in either my image or Dr. Arp's. The Atlas note was "tubular arm, straight at first, then bent. Secondary arm from straight
portion." Only Arp 96 is closer to Polaris
than this field.
This image is a merger of a 44 minute Cookbook image and a 19 minute SX716 image. The big blooming spike from the bright star is an artifact which occurs because the Cookbook camera has no anti-blooming gate.
