- Some further results:

Call the 3 circles Oa, Ob, Oc. Let Sa be the insimilicenter of Ob and Oc, and define Sb, Sc cyclically.

The lines ASa, BSb, CSc concur (non-ETC, search: 2.007236950111909). Coordinates?

Let A'B'C' be the reflection of the intouch triangle in X(11) (mentioned below).

Let A"B"C" be the triangle formed by the radical axes of Oa and the A-excircle, Ob and the B-excircle, Oc and the C-excircle.

Let A2B2C2 be the '2nd extouch triangle' (the triangle formed by lines through the pairs of external extouch points of each excircle).

A'B'C', A"B"C", and A2B2C2 are homothetic, with common center of homothety being X(125) of A2B2C2 (non-ETC, search: 4.652666136903451). Coordinates?

It may be worth exploring the relationship between Oa, Ob, Oc and the mixtilinear in/excircles.

- It is Another "Seven Circles Theorem" !

The "Seven Circles Theorem" states:

Let a,b',c, a',b,c' be a closed chain of six circles,

all toouching a base circle w[omega], and suppose that

their points of contact with w are six distinct points

A,B',C,A',B,C' respectively. Then, subject of a certain

extra condition to be discussed below, AA',BB',CC' are concurrent.

(C J A Evelyn, B G Money - Coutts, J A Tyrrell:

The Seven Circles Theorem and other theorems. London 1974, p. 31)
