NGC 4008 is a definite S0 because of the
extended outer envelope, unlike the luminosity
profile of an E5. The bright central bulge is
similar to an E2 galaxy. The major axis of the
outer envelope (of flattening index 5) is tilted
relative to the bulge by about 10 deg. The E5
classification in the RC2, based on a weak Mount
Wilson 100-inch plate, cannot be supported. The
S0 outer envelope is clearly visible on the print
here.
