Re:NGC 3893
NGC 3893.---SABbc: Centrally condensed, slightly elliptical bulge.
Grand-design two-armed spiral pattern emerges from the major-axis ends
of the bulge. The inner arms are high-contrast, rich with star-forming
knots, and have obvious inner dust lanes. After winding for ~250deg,
they become broad, LSB outer arms that can be traced for another
~100deg before fading into the sky. NGC 3938.---Sb: System nearly
face-on. Centrally con-densed nucleus in a bright bulge. Grand-design
two-armed spiral in the inner disk, with the arms bifurcating and
becoming very broad in the outer disk. Arms are very knotty. They can
be traced through at least a full 360deg before fading into the sky.

Re:UGC 06778
UGC 6778 (NGC 3893)
This late type spiral exhibits a regular velocity field with wiggles
at the crossing of the spiral arms. The rotation curve is fairly
symmetric, slowly rising up to 1 arcmin from the center, where it
reaches a plateau at about 280 km s^-1^. A pause can be seen in the
rising part, at about 20 arcsec from the center, marking the end of
the small central bar (one can see also the typical alignment of the
velocity lines along the bar). The WHISP HI data suggest that the
rotation curve gets down beyond 2 arcmin but the H{alpha} emission
is not enough extended to check that. However the beginning of the
strong warp seen on the WHISP velocity field can be seen on the
redshifted side of our data. This warp is probably due to the
interaction with UGC 6781, 4 arcmin towards the SE, both galaxies
appearing connected through a long HI tail.

Re:KPG 302A
KPG302A. The galaxy is classified as SAB(rs)c:. Our (B-I) and
sharp/filtered images show a beautiful spiral structure with knotty blue
features all along the arms. We cannot identify signs of a barred
structure. We classify this galaxy as Sc. The (B-V)_T_^0^ colour is
representative of Sc-Scd types. Our EE class is 12.

NGC 3893 and its companion, NGC 3896,
are members of the Ursa Major Cluster, whose
mean redshift is about = 980 km/s. The
angular size of the galaxy is large at D_25_ = 4.4'
listed in the RC2. The size is slightly smaller than
the largest galaxies in the Virgo Cluster such as
NGC 4321 and NGC 4303 on the preceding
The spiral pattern of NGC 3893 is of the
grand design type having two principal spiral
arms, both of high surface brightness for at least
half a turn from their place of origin near the
center. The largest of the numerous HII regions
in the arms resolve (core + halo) at about the 2"

A fine, bright, nearly round spiral, 2' in diameter; bright, almost stellar
nucleus. The two main whorls are rather open, and show numerous almost stellar
