Arp 86 (NGC 7753 & 52)

   Arp 86 is in the class Spirals with Large HSB Companions on Arms.  NGC 7753 is the primary and NGC 7752 is the companion.  I would expect the companion to be easier to find visually than the primary because of its brightness.  The Atlas notes say "double arm leading to companion".  That is, at best, just hinted at in my image and is not easy to detect in the Atlas image.
