1. 1994CAG1..B...0000S
Re:NGC 1518
Oct 23/24, 1981
103aO + GG385

NGC 1518 is nearly on edge, making it
impossible to trace the spiral pattern or accurately
to classify the galaxy. There is no central
bulge; hence the late-type classification is
required. There is possibly a bar and an arm
structure, as in NGC 1300 (but later), where the
arms spring from the ends of the bar.
The arms contain many HII-region candidates
and possibly individual resolved stars.
The redshift is v_o = 914 km/s.

2. 1985SGC...C...0000C
Re:NGC 1518
Plate 4733
Overexposed bar, patchy arms with many knots. Small low surface
brightness companion 2.7 north-north-preceding.

3. 1976RC2...C...0000d
Re:NGC 1518
Pair with NGC 1521 at 22 arcmin.

4. 1964RC1...C...0000d
Re:NGC 1518
Bright bar (partially resolved): 0.7 arcmin x 0.17 arcmin.
2 main, partially resolved arms, one stronger.
Non-interacting pair with NGC 1521 at 22 arcmin.
A.J., 61, 97, 1956.

5. 1956AJ.....61...97H
Re:NGC 1518
HMS Note No. 026
Early-type spectrum (HMS Plate IVg) with broad hydrogen absorption lines.
One part of nebula shows faint emission at H{beta} and the [OIII] chief
nebular lines (N1 and N2).
Slit oriented on brightest part, which may be a bar making a small angle
with the major axis.
