Intrigued by Martin Mobberley's image (with 156P), i obtained a deep image of PGC 72139 with a 50cm F3.8 in Chile. The object is a fine stream of stars dragged between two galaxies. The colour information is all but lost here. The raw FITS images were processed in Astro Art.  From 52N, the galaxy reaches an altitude of 35 degrees.
