Object name: ARP066
Arp66/UGC 10396 falls under Arp's category: "Spiral galaxies with small high surface brightness companions on arms." I assume the "companion" Arp is speaking of is the bright object about 21 seconds north of the core of UGC 10396. Problem is that object doesn't appear in NED. Thousands of Sloan survey galaxies are listed in my field. None of which match the position of the bright object. One note at NED says: "Blue condensation 0.12 x 0.10 at 0.35 north center, probably at tip of spiral arm." But it appears completely separate of any arm in my image as well as the Sloan image. Some connection appears possible in Arp's image, however. But to an inner arm, not the one apparently referred to above. Adding to the problems of deciphering this field is the lack of redshift data for anything in the image other than Arp 66's core galaxy. That has a redshift of z=0.020631 which puts it about 280 million light years distant. It is located southern Draco just above its border with Hercules. This one would also fit in Arp's 3 arm spiral category. Seems to have three better-defined arms, one is just a disconnected arc, than some he included in that category.
