The main print is a superposition of four
plates taken with the Palomar 200-inch telescope
in 1954 and 1981. The outer circular envelope,
shown well in the main print, is of very low
surface brightness, requiring the superposition
On visual inspection of the plate, the image
consists of the three apparent zones characteristic
of many of the galaxies in the first six
panels of this S0 section. (1) The inner zone,
shown only in the insert print, is of high surface
brightness and resembles an E0 galaxy. This may
be the bulge. (2) The narrow intermediate zone
seen in the insert has an inner and an outer edge
in the main print. It is of intermediate (yet still
high) surface brightness. It is well seen even on a
weakly exposed early plate from the Mount Wilson
60-inch. (3) The outer very faint envelope is
only hinted at on each of the four individual
plates in this superposition printing, but is well
seen in the composite main print here. The slight
structure in this outer envelope is the reason for
the mixed S0_1/2_ notation.
Not any of the three-zone structure seen in
the prints here is visible in the Hubble Atlas (p.
5) reproduction, made from only one of the
plates used here. But the description of the
luminosity profile in the Hubble Atlas remains

Re:NGC 3065
NGC 3065: The presence of the ring and lens suggest this roundish SA0 to
have a dominant disk.

Re:NGC 3065
Small, very bright nucleus with inner bright center, weak (r):
1.0 arcmin x 0.8 arcmin at the edge of a lens. Very faint envelope.
Interacting pair with NGC 3066 at 3.0 arcmin.
Heidelberg Veroff. Vol. 9, 1926 and HA 88, 2 dimensions for nucleus only.
B(0): source F rejected.
IAU Symp., No. 5, 1958 = Lick Cont., II, No. 81, 1958.

The form of the luminosity curve might be accounted for
either by a circular ring of partial obscuration in the
middle of the envelope or by a concentration of luminosity
near the boundary. In either event, a segregation of
material is indicated. This illustration of NGC 3065 is very poor;
nothing but the nucleus and lens shows. The subjective
I(r) curve for this galaxy is shown in the drawing below.

Re:NGC 3065
HMS Note No. 077
Exposed simultaneously with NGC 3066.
There is some indication that a stronger exposure might show this
wide pair connected by {lambda} 3727, which is present in considerable
intensity throughout both nebulae.
