48" (2/19/12): Arp 192 is a highly disturbed double system with a enormous irregular plume to the south and diffuse haze off the east side. At 488x, the main body was ~1.0'x0.7', extended NNW-SSE and split into two components. On the northwest side of the main core is 2MASXJ10365945+1808157, a large knot with a stellar center that is likely the core of an interacting companion. The plume or tail was visible as a diffuse, fairly wide extension attached at the south-southeast end and extending south for ~1.0', roughly doubling the length of the galaxy. A mag 15 star lies 1.6' S.
17.5" (3/1/03): faint, moderately large, elongated 4:3 N-S, 1.0'x0.8', broad concentration to a slightly brighter core but no nucleus. Overall fairly low surface brightness.
