Gregg,

Nice job. That must be a hard one to process with those stars so nearby.

Subject: [DarkSkyNewMexico] Arp 136

Hi all:

Arp 136 sits adjacent to a pair of 6th magnitude blue stars. Its main component is NGC 5820 and is described by Arp as an "elliptical with nearby fragments". NGC 5820 shows a "streamer" to its southeast, possibly related to the nearby NGC 5821. A lot of fainter background galaxies dot the field:
