5.1 UGC 4671-5
Figures 1(a) and 1(b) show the Palomar Gunn r optical image of the galaxy
pair UGC 4671 (west) and UGC 4675 (east). North is up and east is to the left in
this and all figures. UGC 4671 is a nearly face on galaxy with tightly packed
spiral arms [Fig. 1(a)]. There is a bright linear feature extending radially to
the east of the nucleus (note that CCD artifacts run North-South) which is
brightest at its center [Fig. 1(b)]. A counterpart is also seen in H I [Fig.
1(b)]. The companion galaxy UGC 4675 is more edge on and has a thick bar
misaligned with the projected major axis.
No H I is detected from UGC 4675. The H I distribution of UGC 4671 extends
towards the south [Fig. 1(a)]. The kinematical major axis is curved [Fig. 1(c)]
but the higher resolution map [Fig. 1(d)] shows that at the center of the
galaxy it is aligned with the optical major axis.
