The spiral pattern in NGC 406 is not well
defined. Although the luminosity class assigned in
the RSA2 is II, the diffuseness of the pattern
suggests the later luminosity class of II.8 given
The redshift is v_o = 1326 km/s.
Overexposed center, knots on arms. In outer part of SMC.
Poorly resolved outer arms?
