Arp 93 (NGC 7684 & 85)

 Arp 93 continues the class Spirals with Elliptical Galaxy Companions on Arms.  The Atlas note is "long faint plume bifurcates from arm, E comp. in other arm.  Suggested rotation of axis of spiral".  The long plume is very faint, being just visible in the negative image but fairly obvious in the false color image.  I find the little "asterism" near the south side of the field, SSW of Arp 93, to be very interesting.  As far as I can tell, it consists of three stars and a galaxy.
