8 note(s) found in NED.

1. 2003AJ....126..742H
Re:NGC 3887
The morphological classification as determined by us is indicated in
parentheses next to the galaxy name, with our "chaotic circumnuclear
dust" (C) category now not including those galaxies with obvious dust
lanes (DL). Where the classification has already been made by Martini
et al. (2003), we indicate this with "-mp."
3.16. NGC 3887
Figure 8 (top).
Spectrum: H{alpha} and [N II] emission is weak and is obvious only in
the NUC spectrum.

Re:NGC 3887
NGC 3887.---SBab: Fairly small, centrally condensed bulge, becoming
very elliptical with increasing radius. Bulge is threaded by a bar
with nearly the same P.A. as the bulge major axis. Two-armed spiral
pattern commences at the bar ends. The arms can be traced for ~300deg
before disappearing. The arms do not have knots, but they are quite
lumpy (features much larger than typical star-forming knots). Beyond
~180deg, the arms are traced mainly by these lumps (the diffuse
emission is largely lost in the sky).

Re:NGC 3887
NGC 3887 (SBbc, 1"~71 pc, I=39.5^deg^)
Inner isophotes (between a=3" and 25") inside the large-scale bar (e_max_=0.68
at a=33"; PA=181^deg^) are twisted by 22^deg^

The central region of NGC 3887 is an oval
rather than a well-defined bar. The principal
reason for classification as a barred spiral is the
presence of two thin dust lanes starting on opposite
sides of the center, as is usual in prototype
SBb and SBbc bars (e.g. NGC 5383; SBb; Hubble
Atlas, p. 46; panel 168 here). These remain
straight throughout the oval but bend at the end
where they begin to accompany the luminous
The largest of the many HII regions resolve
(core plus halo) at the 2" level. The redshift of
NGC 3887 is v_o = 915 km/s.

Re:NGC 3887
Small, bright nucleus in a smooth bar with a dark lane. (r): 1.05 arcmin x
0.08 arcmin. Several knotty, branching arms.

HMS Note No. 114
Nucleus only.
Absorption lines are faint and redshift is uncertain.
