NGC 2566.---(R)SBa: Nuclear point source embedded in a large slightly
elliptical bulge. Bulge is threaded by a long, thin, bright bar.
Underlying LSB disk, with an outer ring/ tightly wound spiral arms.
The ring is irregular and lumpy but has no obvious bright knots of
current star formation. The disk P.A. is offset ~30deg away from that
defined by the bar. The outer disk isophotes appear offset from the
nucleus of the galaxy. However, sky irregularities make the disk hard
Regular blue nuclear spiral arms; red (dust) lanes outside
Overexposed center, dist bar, very knotty (r'): 2.1 x 1.2; faint arms.
Many stars superposed.
=ESO 495- G 03
