Re:NGC 3032
This dusty galaxy shows negative Mg b and Fe5270S line strength gradients. The
Fe5015 map shows a ring-like structure of weak absorption while the centre
exhibits strong Fe5015 absorption. The H{beta} map reveals a prominent peak in
the centre and shows evidence of rising values at larger radii. The unusual
structure of the line strength maps and the relatively strong emission detected
in this galaxy (see Fig. 6 and Paper V) suggest that a recent starburst has
occurred in this galaxy with weak evidence of ongoing star formation.

Re:NGC 3032
Although heavy binning limits our ability to judge the regularity of the gas
distribution and kinematics in this galaxy, overall the gas appears to be
consistent with a disc of gas in circular rotation, in almost the opposite sense
than the stars. The presence of very regular dust lanes and of a more regular
H{beta} kinematics (Fig. C3) further suggests a disc distribution for the gas.
This dusty galaxy features the strongest H{alpha} emission in our sample, and
the lowest values for the [O III]/H{beta} ratios. The relative strength of the
H{beta} line compared to the [O III]{lambda}5007 line shows a clear radial
pattern: from twice as bright at the edge of the disc, to 10 times stronger at
~4 arcsec, and finally giving way to the [O III] lines very sharply in the
central 2 arcsec. The detection of molecular gas by Sage & Wrobel (1989) further
suggests ongoing star formation activity.

Re:UGC 05292
UGC 5292: the presence of a bright point source, combined with a complex large
scale profile prevents the fitting of this source.

Re:NGC 3032
NGC 3032: This dusty galaxy shows mild rotation and low dispersion
values.

Re:NGC 3032
NGC 3032 (LW)
This is one of the few examples of a nuclear dust spiral with
associated star formation, and there are several sites of star
formation scattered throughout the circumnuclear disk. Given the high
density of dust lanes, it is not possible to determine if these sites
of star formation lead or trail the dust features, although the fact
that they have the same pitch angle as the neighboring dust lanes
suggests that they are connected. The central region of the V image is
saturated, although even outside this saturated region the
circumnuclear disk is very blue.

Re:KUG 0949+294
The nucleus and the outer disk are blue.

Re:NGC 3032
Overall, NGC 3032 is much redder to the southwest, and the nucleus
is surrounded by a disk of blue emission in a spiral pattern. In
addition, a strong blue emission region is seen 3" northeast of the
nucleus. Two red dust lanes can also be seen in the image. The inner
dust lane approaches from the north of the nucleus and curves around the
western side of the nucleus at a distance of 4" to connect to the blue
disk southeast of the nucleus. The other dust lane enters the image from
the northwest and then exits the image to the southeast. It may reenter
the map northeast of the nucleus where a dust lane appears to connect to
blue features north of the nucleus.

Re:NGC 3032
2: NGC 3032 (S0). Fluxes of 1.0-1.3 Jy km s^-1^ were reported at Arecibo and
5.3 Jy km s^-1^ at Green Bank. Our observations of NGC 3032 match the Arecibo
measurements, and no additional emission is found in any of the points
immediately surrounding the galaxy. However, about 10' to the northeast, there
is a complex H I distribution that we mapped out with a finer grid spacing.
There appear to be two distinct objects: 0950+2931 is a single-horned H I
profile probably associated with a small, relatively high surface brightness
dwarf visible on the Palomar plate and listed in the Kiso Ultraviolet Galaxy
Catalog (Takase & Miyauchi-Isobe 1986) as KUG 0950+295. The other object,
0949+2935, is ~4' northwest of the other. It has a double-horned profile,
which is normally indicative of a rotating disk galaxy, but only a few
extremely faint features are visible on the Palomar plate, which have no clear
organization into a classifiable galaxy. Curiously, a faint IRAS source,
F09499+2935, is listed only ~1' from the coordinates of this object. A more
detailed study of this system is in preparation.

NGC 3032 is classed as S0_3_ in the Hubble
Atlas and SB0/S0 in the RC2, both using the
same 200-inch plate. However, there is no doubt
that the almost circular dust lane forms a very
tight spiral pattern. The dust near-ring can be
traced completely around the central bulge,
isolating the bright outer luminous ring that itself
appears as a tight spiral pattern. This may,
however, appear to be spiral simply because of the
spiral pattern in the dust.
Very faint outer arms are just visible on the
plate but are not seen on this print. They are
similar to but fainter than the arms seen in NGC
3626 (panels 63, 64, and 74).
The nucleus is very bright and is starlike,
producing a secondary image on plates taken
with a Racine wedge. However, the spectrogram
from which the redshift was measured (Humason,
Mayall, and Sandage 1956) shows no emission
lines characteristic of a Seyfert (1943) galaxy.

NGC 3032 and NGC 4459 (right) are excellent type examples
of S03 systems. The internal "absorption ring" of
NGC 3065 (shown in the subjective I(r) curve in the lower left)
has deepened to almost zero intensity and appears as a
complete internal ring. The absorption ring is embedded
in the lens. A very faint envelope is present, but it is not
shown on the reproduction. Regions of faint luminosity
are almost impossible to reproduce on paper prints; this
difficulty is evident throughout the atlas.

(Plate 15)
Fairly large, elongated nucleus on a short, stubby bar,
surrounded by a dark ring or arcs in a bright lens.
The envelope does not show up on this print.
Compare with NGC 4459 (Plate 3), NGC 1553 (Plate 7),
and NGC 4262 (Plate 13).
