8 note(s) found in NED.

1. 2004A&A...415..941E
Re:NGC 0151
NGC 151 (inner disk): Marquez et al. (1999), from which the bar
measurements were taken. Inner-disk measurements are from a NICMOS3
F160W image, and agree well with the Marquez et al. values.

Re:NGC 0151
NGC 151. The slit passed through the major axis of the primary. The
rotation curve is characterized by a nonmonotonic variation of
velocity, which is most conspicuous on the companion side. The H{alpha}
line is almost invisible in the spectrum of the companion - its
central intensity is lower than that of the [NII] line by a factor of
30. The H{alpha} rotation curve of the primary was obtained by
Mathewson and Ford (1996) (at a slit position angle of 75deg). It
reaches a plateau and exhibits smaller variations of rotation velocity.
The velocity of the center of the primary computed by Mathewson and
Ford - 3738+/-10 km s^-1^ - agrees well with our result.

Re:NGC 0151
This galaxy is larger than the size of our infrared images, so we only
present here the properties of the inner regions.
The K' image shows a strong and broad bar, a disky structure, a large
ring, and a nuclear region roughly perpendicular to the bar (Fig. 18a).
Besides confirming the presence of a weak ring, the sharp-divided image
reveals the existence of a small bar roughly perpendicular to the large
bar (Fig. 18b). These features appear very clearly in the difference
image (Fig. 18c) and are quantified by looking at the variations of
{epsilon} and PA with radius (Fig. 18e). The Pa{alpha} image by Boker
et al. (1999) shows that there is star formation ocurring at the ends
of the bar and along the ring. The sharp-masking method applied to the
HST F160W image confirms the presence of the inner bar which can be
traced closer to the nucleus (r ~ 2.5 arcsec, PA = 68^deg^, Fig. 34).
The J/K' image shows a roughly circular redder region of 7 arcsec
radius (Fig. 18d); the inner bar is seen as a slightly redder elongation
along PA ~ 90^deg^.
The bulge + disk fits are merely indicative since the image is too
small to reach the disk (Fig. 18f). They show the existence of the two

The beautifully symmetrical grand design in
the pattern of NGC 151 contains a smooth
central bar which terminates at the place where
two inner arms begin. The arms do not spring
from the ends of the bar but start from two
symmetrically placed points about 15^deg^
downstream from the termination of the bar - a
common-enough feature, noted before on previous
The two principal arms that start at these
places relative to the bar, fragment as they move
outward and form the multiple-arm pattern in
which at least four arm segments can be traced
on each side of the galaxy.
None of the many HII regions resolve at the
1" level.

Re:MCG -02-02-054
{omega} = 77 degrees, {mu}_1_ = 67 degrees, {mu}_2_ = 78 degrees,
{phi}_1_ = 250 degrees, {phi}_2_ = 335 degrees, l_1_ = 1.4, l_2_ = 1.2.
According to Danver the nucleus is quite small and round.
Type :
vdB - Sb^+^II
Morg - fgS5
deV - SB(r)bc
Morgan says that the arms are tilted from the plane.

7. 1964RC1...C...0000d
Re:NGC 0151
Small, bright nucleus with dark material.
Faint blobs at ends of bar.
Asymmetric arms.
(r): 1.05 arcmin x 0.6 arcmin.
NGC 0153 is a star at the end of one of the arms.

8. 1918PLicO..13....9C
Re:NGC 0151
A fine, symmetrical, rather open spiral about 4' x 2' in p.a. 80^deg^ Whorls are
faint; the nucleus large and moderately bright.
