Our B-V and B-K' color and extinction maps of this galaxy reveal a
large dust patch near the center. The b_4_ profile is disky
throughout the observed region. Forbes & Thomson (1992) have detected
possible shells in this galaxy. The extinction images in all bands
show faint structures, which may be responsible for the nonzero
values of the b_4_ coefficient.
NGC 2563. - Forbes & Thomson (1992) have detected possible shells in
this galaxy, but no such feature is found in our somewhat shallower image.
