Arp 147: Hubble releases first post-fix images

The STScI has released images from the first set of data taken since the recent problems with Hubble were fixed: the pair of interacting galaxies known Arp 147, taken using WFPC2 as part of the Cycle 16 observing proposal 11902.

You can see Arp's full Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies at NED Level5. Arp's image of Arp 147 is here, and its really not as peculiar as many of the Arp galaxies.

My personal favorite is Arp 220, although its far from spectacular looking in Arp's atlas.
