Arp 269 (NGC 4485 & 4490)

  Arp 269 is the first member of the class Connected Arms.  The Atlas note says "resolution of knots, emission regions and dust lanes only".  The smaller galaxy to the north is NGC 4485 while the large primary is NGC 4490.  This is only a 12 minute image so it is obviously a bright object.
