Description

Can't find out much about this pretty little interacting pair. The companion is MCG +10 -20 -084 and there has been, or soon will be, an interesting interaction between these two galaxies. Wish it was a bit nearer.

I found a quasar at 19.4 but can find nothing about the blob at 2-o-clock

Here's some data on the big galaxy:

Apparent magnitude 14.20

Apparent size 1.8' x 12''

Surface brightness 21.98

Sub-class Sbc - Barred Spiral

Right ascension 14h 13m 53s

Declination 57º 45' 59''

Taken April this year, 50 x 90 sec exposures.
