Re:NGC 1792
NGC 1792 is a Sbc spiral galaxy at a distance of 10.1 Mpc. ULX1 and ULX2 (IXO
28) are both close to knots on the spiral arms. Between two observations in 2
years, ULX1 showed a change in luminosity from below 0.7 * 10^39^ to 3 * 10^39^
ergs s^-1^.

Re:NGC 1792
NGC 1792.---Sbc: Centrally condensed, elliptical bulge, with no
evidence for a bar. Flocculent spiral pattern with at least five
visible arms. Arms are very prominent, and full of star-forming knots.
There is an asymmetric feature to the SE at low surface brightness:
One of the arms does not curve in the same sense as the others, but
instead extends practically straight along the major axis of the disk.

Re:NGC 1792
NGC 1792 (SAbc, 1"~64 pc, I=62.0^deg^):
The ellipticity maximum inside 10" is related to a short nuclear bar
(e_max_=0.45 at 5") along which no clear twist occurs. Further ellipticity
maxima are connected to spiral arms.

Re:NGC 1792
NGC 1792 is a southern Sc(s)II galaxy (Sandage & Tammann 1981). It is a
member of the NGC 1808 group of galaxies and has been studied recently by
Dahlem (1992). Its H I mass is about 2 per cent of the total dynamical
mass of the galaxy (Dahlem 1992) and its integrated radio continuum flux
density at 20 cm is 276 mJy (Condon 1987). Dahlem (1992) quoted a
somewhat higher value of 324+/-20 mJy and estimated the spectral index to
be about 0.8.

The surface brightness of the spiral fragments
covering the disk is exceptionally high. The
arms are massive in the sense of Reynolds
(1927a,b), and the spiral pattern is multiple, as
in NGC 488, but NGC 1792 here is of later
morphology; the arms are not thin or as easily
traced as they are in NGC 488.
The redshift is v_o = 1055 km/s.

Re:NGC 1792
Extremely high-surface-brightness arms with much internal dust.
The arms are lumpy with resolution into knots.
Part of the lumpiness is due to the intricate dust structure
which cut up the entire disk.
Probable large HII regions of high surface brightness
(need a short unsaturated exposure) of 5 arcsec diameter.
Hence, an excellent candidate for further study.
The chaotic nature of the arms and dust would put the structure
as luminosity class III but the very high surface brightness
of the arms indicates a much higher luminosity, as does the
absolute magnitude of M(B) = -21.4 mag listed in the RSA by
Sandage and Tammann (1979) based on the redshift of +1,058 km/sec
and Ho = 50 km/sec/Mpc
