Arp 38 (NGC 6412)
Arp 38 is in the class Spirals with LSB Companions on Arms. Although not easy to
see, I believe that the LSB companion is the circular spot almost due north of
the core, with a star on the south edge. The Atlas note is "small ring in
arm on N side, part of large ring on E side shows in H[alpha] only".
Arp 38 is offset to the west side of the field because Megastar shows a large, faint galaxy called Kaz 146 about 9' east and a little south of the Arp. I hoped to include it in the image. It clearly does not exist, at least at that location and, according to NED, Kaz 146 is Arp 38.
