Arp Peculiar Galaxy # 112

Arp 112 is a very dim, difficult galaxy to photograph. It is more commonly known as NGC 7805 and NGC 7806. NGC 7806 is particularly dim. Because this pair is so dim, I am only posting an inverted image. The fuzzy star next to NGC 7805 is simply that, a star that simply appears fuzzy.
