Arp 5 (NGC 3664)
| Arp 5 is normally classified as a barred spiral and was included by Dr. Arp
in his LSB Spirals class. The small galaxy at the bottom
of the field is NGC 3664A. Dr. Arp mentioned it in the Atlas notes with
the comment "fainter dwarf 6' S". It is not part of Arp's field but it is
certainly unusual. I'm looking forward to making a deeper, higher
resolution image of it some day.
It was very windy while I was taking this image, and I was only able to use about half the individual exposures.
