Re:NGC 3610
NGC 3610.-Observational data match with models at 0.004 <= Z <= 0.01, in
agreement with Howell et al. (2004). The age range predicted by different models
is quite broad, going from ~5 to ~16 Gyr.

Re:NGC 3610
NGC 3610 (this paper): The only previous age estimate for NGC 3610 is 4 Gyr
(Schweizer & Seitser 1992) based on the UBV colors of the galaxy. Figure 18
shows that the colors and luminosities of the globular clusters in NGC 3610 are
quite consistent with this age estimate, with an enhancement of red clusters
(V-I~1.15 mag) which are ~0.7 mag brighter than the blue clusters in the
galaxy. Our estimated mean age for the clusters based on the assumptions and
procedures described in the previous section is 4+/-2.5 Gyr. In addition, Fig.
4 shows that the red clusters tend to be located near the center of the galaxy,
consistent with the conjecture by Ashman & Zepf (1992) that the younger
clusters should be more centrally concentrated. Hence, NGC 3610 is a good
candidate for an elliptical galaxy with a population of intermediate-age

An incipient disk is present in NGC 3610.
It cuts across the lower third of the bright bulge
in the orientation of the print here. It appears as
an asymmetry in what otherwise would be an
elliptically symmetric E5 image.
A very small apparent companion is seen in
the insert print to the lower left of the major axis
of the bulge. The possible pair is a candidate for
a cannibalistic merger.

Re:NGC 3610
NGC 3610: This well known diE (see Scorza & Bender 1990) is surrounded
by a peculiar envelope, strongly twisted against the inner body, and not
detected in classical CCD work of insufficient field. It thus shows
analogies with such objects as NGC 596 or 3872.

5. 1994A&AS..105..341G
Re:NGC 3610
This galaxy exhibits a prominent, edge-on stellar disk along the major
axis in the inner regions (see, e.g., Scorza & Bender 1990}). Our
H{alpha}+[NII] image reveals weak line emission associated with the
central regions of the disk. The B-I image shows that the stellar disk
has a slightly bluer colour than the surrounding regions ({DELTA}(B-I) =
0.12). This may be due to a younger stellar population; the fact that the
H{alpha} line remains in absorption after subtraction of the
absorption-line template from the nuclear spectrum is consistent with
this view. No obvious dust absorption. Detected by IRAS at 100 microns.
Radio source.

Re:NGC 3610
Prominent stellar disk along the major axis in inner region (cf. Scorza &
Bender 1990). Boxy isophotes in outer regions. Detected by IRAS at 100
microns. Radio source.
