    This is a pretty spectacular early-stage merger, isn't it?

    I wonder whether the radio source in the center is associated with NGC 2798? If it were a lobe, the other one would not be visible in FIRST, but might be in NVSS ...

    very nice. I would say that the compact radio at the centre isn't related but the nice radio in the bottom right is really highlighting this interaction.
