Arp 64 is the pretty little trio at the center of the field. It is in
the class Spirals with Small HSB Companions on Arms, and it has two. One
companion is at the north end of the strange arm with the 90 degree bend, and
the other is at the end of the arm or tidal tail pointing due west. The
Atlas note confirms this, saying "both arms lead toward companions". There
are lots of other tiny galaxies in the field. The southwest corner of this
field contains a small portion, maybe 10%, of Abell Galaxy Cluster 1960.
