Hi, Nice shot. Just a few minutes ago I was re-writing up my earlier attempts at Arp117.  Good to have a touch of colour. IC 982 is a small elliptical (80,000 lyrs across perturbing IC 983 (325,000 lyrs across). Once you start on the Arps you will get hooked - much pleasure.

I really need to re-visit this Arp and many others and explore better settings.

Cheers, Mike

Actually these galaxies are very interesting. But at the moment I continue with my particular marathon of objects of equal or less than 12 magnitude and until I finish it I can not start a new one.
If the Mediterranean sky behaves moderately well I hope to finish it this year.

Between all we are going to obtain a quite complete collection of celestial objects...
