Arp 283 consists of NGC 2798 (UGC 4905, VV 50a and others) on the right and NGC 2799 (UGC 4909, VV 50b and others) on the left. Part of Arp’s ‘Double Galaxies – Infall and Attraction’ class, both are located around 84-86 million light-years away in Lynx.

UGC 4904 is the somewhat odd galaxy located below Arp 283.

MCG+07-19-046 is the galaxy near the top center. Simbad doesn’t appear to classify it but it looks E to me.

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 8x300s – 40 minutes each – binned 2x2

360 minutes total exposure – 6 hours

Imaged February 17th, 19th and 23rd, 2020 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.
