Very nice Mike. Our own Arp program is continuing and during our last visit to the observatory we managed to put together a montage of six of the fainter Arps using our 12.5 inch Planewave. The image is here http://www.paulandliz.org/Galaxies/ARP/Arp_Montage_191114.jpg
We were surprised to discover, when we changed the C14 for a 12.5″ scope, how much light gathering capability we had lost for the very faintest Arps. What you are doing with 8 inches is commendable.
