| This is another in
the Integral Sign classification but, to me, it looks like two
interacting galaxies with the integral sign appearance more of an
accident. This replacement image is only 28 minutes of integration
but is considerably better than the 40 minute image it replaced.
Same telescope and camera, but the conditions, focus, and guiding were
all improved. A 2x detail is included. The object just off
the N tip is actually a double galaxy. That is only hinted at in
this image but can be seen clearly in the Atlas.
Arp 32 is cataloged as UGC 10396, and has two designations, 89a and 89b, in the Vorontsov-Velyaminov catalog.
