PGC 58150 (=
Arp 66)
A 15th-magnitude spiral galaxy (type Sbc) in Draco (RA 16 26 53.2, Dec +51 33 18)

Based on a recessional velocity of 6185 km/sec, PGC 58150 is about 290 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 1.1 by 0.7 arcmin, it is about 90 thousand light years across. The small knot at the end of the northern arm that appears to be the reason for its Arp listing is at 16 26 54.2, +51 33 38 (1s of time east and 20" north of the center of the galaxy); whether it is a separate object or merely part of PGC 58150 itself, it appears to have no separate listing or other information available.
