Object name: ARP225
Arp 225/NGC 2655 is a nearby strange galaxy in Camelopardalis. Redshift puts it about 65 million light-years away though a Tully estimate says more like 80. I'm going to go with the closer figure as even that distance makes it a huge galaxy some 170,000 light-years across. The more distant estimate makes it about 210,000 light-years across. I doubt it is that big. The galaxy was discovered by William Herschel on September 26, 1802. It is in the original Herschel 400 observing program. My notes made on the night of April 14, 1985 at 100x under fair conditions using my 10" f/5 reads: "Small, faint, circular puff of a galaxy with a small but not starlike nucleus."
