NGC 3718 (Arp 214) - 42.4 mly away. NGC 3718 seems to have a rudimentary bar & spiral structure although it is recognized as a peculiar galaxy. Its most prominent feature is its extraordinary dust lane &  strongly warped disk which gives an S-shaped appearance. The dust lane runs through the entire stellar bulge of the galaxy & stretches some 80,000 ly. The disk is seen almost edge on at the center & is strongly warped to almost 90 degrees, which is quite unique among galaxies. Via Facebook

NGC 4522 is a spectacular example of a spiral galaxy that is currently being stripped of its gas content. The galaxy is part of the Virgo galaxy cluster and its rapid motion within the cluster results in strong winds across the galaxy as the gas within is left behind. The galaxy is moving at more than 10 million kilometres per hour and is some 60 million light-years away. Newly formed star clusters that developed in the stripped gas can be seen in this image.

M82, also catalogued as NGC 3034, and know as the Cigar Galaxy, is the nearby prototype of an extremely bright starburst galaxy. The red glowing filaments are gasses being driven out by stellar particle winds, but the exact reason and mechanism is unknown. It is about 12 million light-years away from earth and appears in the constellation Ursa Major.
