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.
