The NVSS identification is good despite the large NVSS/optical offset
for this asymmetric galaxy. The radio source appears swept out to the
Nov 8/9, 1980
Two faint stubs of luminous spiral arcs begin
at the center but fade into the inner disk after a
quarter revolution. The larger fragments of arms
composing the outer spiral pattern begin farther
from the center and have no clear connection
with the two inner spiral stubs.
The bright stars show the secondary images
made by the Racine wedge, separated from the
primary by 18" with an intensity that is 5 mag
The redshift is v_o = 1296 km/s.
Small, bright nucleus. Several faint knotty arms. Poorly resolved.
