Arp 338

  Arp 338 is the last member of the Unique class, and the last galaxy in the Atlas.  It is the little group ESE of center.  The primary is PGC 154807 and the bar across the face has its own catalog designation of PGC 3094767.  The galaxy about 45" to the SW is PGC 1010862.  There is another LSB galaxy just SW of the nearby star.  It can just be detected in the Atlas image but NED lists nothing at this location.  The 3x detail image shows the details of the two brighter galaxies and a couple of other nearby galaxies, but the LSB galaxy is mostly cut off by the bottom edge.

The galaxy just over 4' NW is Mitchell Anonymous 101-0751 and is in the 2MASX catalog.
