VII Zw 768 Variable compact galaxy VII Zw 768 = 3C371, at R.A. 18h7.2m, Decl. +69°49'.

Fig 1a. 1 minute exposure on IIa-0 plate shows the nucleus of 3C371 indistinguishable from stars.
Fig 1b. 164 minute exposure on IIIa-J plates shows faint halo around 3C371 and numerous compact galaxies nearby.
Fig 1c. Isodensitometer tracing of plate b) shows luminous intergalactic material [photos courtesy of H.C. Arp].

VII Zw 768 Fig d. 200-inch telescope plate, emulsion IIa-0 and exposure of 5 minutes, obtained by Zwicky on July 16, 1965 shows VII Zw 768 = 3C371 as a compact galaxy just distinguishable from stars of equal brightness.
