Arp 72 (NGC 5994 & 96)
Arp 72 is class Spirals with Small HSB Companions on Arms. The companion
is at the west end of the south arm. This galaxy also has a very faint arm
sweeping from the north end all around the east side. It is just barely
detectable in the negative image and faint, though clearly visible, in the Atlas
image. It is mentioned in the Atlas note, which says "faint material from
arm to and around comp. Opposite arm faint, sweeps around East of galaxy". This is another image taken with the MX916 camera.
