NGC 2955, with v_o = 7051 km/s, has the
second-largest redshift in the RSA; consequently
the number of resolution elements in the image is
among the smallest in this atlas. (The galaxy with
the largest redshift is NGC 7119, ScII, panel
282, with v_o = 9825 km/s.)
There are two main arms of the grand design
type beginning at the center in NGC 2955.
