1. 1994CAG1..B...0000S
Re:NGC 3056
S0_1/2_(5) pec
March 15/16, 1980
103aO + GG385
45 min
The subtle but evident circular (dust?)
structure throughout the disk of NGC 3056
necessitates the mixed S0_1/2_ classification. Some
star formation may be occurring at the top of the
image. This luminosity enhancement, visible only
over a small arc of the rim, must be the reason
for the external-ring designation of the RS0
classification in the RC2, based on a Mount Wilson
100-inch plate.

The remarkably extended, very faint outer
envelope in NGC 4267 can be traced on the
original plate to beyond the two bright stars to
the right of the bulge on the print here. The bulge
is flattened, and has the beginnings of a disk
embedded in the nearly circular envelope. (The
latter may be either a halo or an outer disk seen
face on.) The flattening of the bulge is interpreted
as the bar because its major axis makes a
large angle (about 80 deg) with the major axis of the
outer envelope, characteristic of barred galaxies.
In an ensemble of barred galaxies, the position
angle of the bar is independent of the position
angle of the intermediate disk in which the bar is
embedded. (Note that the disk is called the lens
in the Hubble Atlas.)

Re:NGC 3056
Bright diffuse nucleus: 0.3 arcmin x 0.2 arcmin. Very faint (r or R?):
