Arp 315 (NGC 2830, 31, & 32)
Arp 315 is in the Galaxy Groups class. The Atlas note says "companion E is
quite compact". Arp 315 is the group at the top center of the image.
The large E is NGC 2832, the small E about 0.5' SW is NGC 2831 -- this is the
companion in the Atlas note -- and the edge-on spiral another arc minute SW is
NGC 2830. The edge-on due W of this group, not part of the Arp, is NGC
2825. The edge-on in the SW corner is NGC 2826 and the tiny pair 2' back
to the NE is NGC 2629. Finally, the small E-like galaxy 4' SE of Arp 315
is NGC 2834.
