Re:NGC 3735
NGC 3735 (S2:). - The central core of NGC 3735 is embedded within a
much larger disk of radio emission, which is best seen in the tapered
6 cm map. The extended component, with an angular diameter of 76" (15 kpc),
has the same P.A. as that of the major axis of this edge-on galaxy, and is
most likely associated with it. Irwin, English, & Sarathia (1999) show a
low-resolution C array 20 cm image of the galaxy. Although the fit of the
central core in our maps formally indicates that it is slightly resolved,
we consider this result to be unreliable because the derived major axis of
the source lies along the very elongated beam, and thus we classify the
core as unresolved. Greenhill et al. (1997) reported the discovery of a
nuclear water maser source in NGC 3735. They also observed the nucleus in
the continuum at high resolution ({DELTA}{theta} ~ 0.2"-0.4"). The nucleus
was detected at 3.6 cm (S_3.6_ = 0.6 mJy) and 6 cm (S_6_ = 0.7 mJy), but
not at 2 cm (S_2_ < 1 mJy). Their 6 cm flux density is consistent with our
measurement (S_6_^P^ = 0.81 mJy).

Re:NGC 3735
NGC 3735, is a member of the Lyon Group of Galaxies (LGG) 240
(Garcia 1993), is a low luminosity Seyfert 2 galaxy (Ho, Filippenko, &
Sargent 1995) and a ROSAT X-ray detection has been reported by Rush et
al. (1996). Greenhill et al. (1997) have discovered an H2O maser in this
galaxy which is coincident with the radio continuum peak, which they
have measured at 2, 3.6, and 6 cm. Our 20 cm peak also agrees with the
position of the maser to within 0.01^s^ in right ascension and 0.1" in
The high-resolution image of Figure 1 reveals an unresolved bright
core and rather interesting resolved structure along the major axis. The
disk emission is much stronger on the eastern major axis, compared with
the western, and also shows a radio continuum loop centered 8.6" to the
east of the nucleus. This loop has diameter 4.9" (875 pc) along the
major axis and 3.4" (612 pc) perpendicular to the major axis (in
projection). If the loop were in the midplane of the galaxy, its
perpendicular dimension would be 4.4 kpc using the mean inclination of
82^deg^ (Paper I), much greater than its width. As with IC 564 and
NGC 3044, this loop may be oriented perpendicular to the plane.
The historical supernova in this galaxy was discovered on 1998 June
17 and was not seen in previous optical images taken on April 17. Thus,
our May 13-14 radio observations may have preceded the supernova.

Re:NGC 3735
The spectrum of NGC 3735 is that of a low-luminosity Seyfert 2 galaxy; to
our knowledge, it has not been previously cataloged as an AGN (Veron-
Cetty & Veron 1993). In addition to having [O III] >> H{beta} and [N II]
~ H{alpha}, weak He II {lambda}4686 is present.
