Object name: ARP150
Designation(s): ARP150, HCG95, NGC7609,
Arp 150 is part of the 4 galaxy group known as Hickson Compact Group 95 and is located about 500 million light-years away. Unfortunately, I was hit by clouds and only got one third the data I had wanted. I planned on getting the rest but forgot to put it on my list. I didn't realize I'd not gotten the data until too late. It didn't help that I had imaged the first night at 0.5" per pixel and never had a night after that, that was up to the needed seeing quality until I forgot about it. So the image below is very thin and noisy. Color data was very poor. It will have to do for now. I found this text comment about the group but the image it refers to was missing. I believe a is the top galaxy, c the middle one with b the lower left and d lower right. The suspected elliptical is very orange in color in my lousy color data as a distant elliptical "should" be. I could find nothing on it, however, not even a catalog name. While the curving arc is easily seen in my image I didn't get enough data to show the jet very well. It is the linear feature coming out of the "middle" spiral to a point just right of the core of the top elliptical. It shows better in Arp's photo.
