IC 3128 is a double or triple system, perhaps including a third (or fourth) galaxy to the southeast. The main component (VIII Zw 180.2) appears to me to be a bright nearly stellar object with a plume to the southeast superposed on a fainter galaxy just northwest. Zwicky has yet another galaxy further on to the northwest. Neither this northwestern galaxy, nor the one to the southeast, appear to be interacting with the peculiar system in the middle.
