NGC 3250: Counter-rotating disk 9" away from the center of intensity
with a diameter of 3", h_3_ proportional to -v, indicating decoupled
central component kinematics (Bender et al. 1994). The Mg_2_ profile of
this galaxy also features a central depression (Carollo et al. 1993).

NGC 3250 is a normal, moderately compact prototypical E3 galaxy.
It is in the rich region of the Hydra-Centaurus Supercluster near
the Antlia Cluster (Sandage 1975b; Ferguson and Sandage 1990), but 4
deg south. A survey and a radial velocity study of the region is given
by Hopp and Materne (1985), where the relation of NGC 3250 to the
neighboring galaxies is set out (their Fig. 1).
Regular elliptical with low but significant Fourier terms.
Faint star superposed. E1 4.2 preceding, SB0 sp 7.2 south-following.
=ESO 317- G 26
Bright nucleus. There are 2 stars 0.5 arcmin following.
