4 note(s) found in NED.

1. 1994CAG1..B...0000S
Re:NGC 2888
E2 (S0?)
March 17/18, 1980
103aO + GG385
45 min
The luminosity gradient of NGC 2888 is shallow enough in its
outer envelope to put the classification at the border between the
morphological boxes of the E, E/S0, or even S0 types. On the original
plate the faint envelope can be traced to the position of the bright
star to the right of the galaxy in the print here. The classification
of E1 in the RC2 is based on a Mount Wilson 100-inch plate on which
the outer envelope is not visible.
