Arp 283 (NGC 2798 & 99)
Arp 283 is in the class Double Galaxies with Infall
and Attraction. The Atlas note says "arc of barely resolved knots curves
into nucleus of larger galaxy". The larger western galaxy is NGC 2798
while the companion is NGC 2799. The spiral near the bottom of the field
is UGC 4904. There a quite a few small galaxies in the field, and what
looks to me like a sparse galaxy cluster centered about 4' SW of the Arp.
NED does not report any objects whatever in this region but there are at least
eight obvious galaxies and another ten or so that are very likely galaxies.
