Object name: HOLMBERG V
Phillip Holmberg studied galaxies. Nine of them in enough detail they have since been named after him. Eight are far enough north I can reach them from 47N. All were put on my to-do list. I've managed to get a few of them; II, IV, VIII and IX and now V. The first 4 were all dwarf galaxies as are most of them. Holmberg II made Arp's list as #268 on his list of peculiar galaxies. Of the 9 the most "normal is this one, Holmberg V. It is a rather normal SAB(rs)c spiral galaxy. The surface brightness is lower than normal but not to a great extent. It does have an odd straight arm segment south of the core that runs nearly due east before curving into a normal looking arm. Arp did have a category for this type feature. Apparently, it didn't make the cut. Why it attracted Holmberg's interest I haven't determined.
