This is an Sbc southern galaxy inclined at an angle of about 76^deg^. It
has been included in several large surveys at various wavelengths - e.g.
the FIR study of van Driel et al. (1993) and the radio continuum sample
of Condon et al. (1996) - but does not appear to have been studied at an
individual level. Alton et al. (1998a) found, from an analysis of the
HiRes data for this object, that the 60 micron emission is rather
'flat-topped' with the majority of energy arising from the inner 2-3'.

The innermost part of the disk is smooth
over the first 50" (diameter) region. The multiple
dust lanes that outline the arm fragments then
begin at the rim of the disk.
Dust-lane asymmetry between the near and
far sides is particularly strong in this galaxy. As
the sense of the opening of the spiral pattern is
also unambiguous in the image here, NGC 134 is
another excellent case for determining the sense
of the rotation relative to the opening of the
spiral arms (Hubble 1943; dc Vaucouleurs
