VCC 9. This very low surface brightness galaxy has multiple bright sources near
its pho tocenter; it may be a dIrr/dE transition object and seems to contain a
rich population of "diffuse star clusters" (Paper XI). In addition to the
presumed nucleus, there is a second source about 2 mag fainter that is located
~1.5" from the photocenter (and a similar distance from the presumed nucleus).
Both the color and the half-light radius of the presumed nucleus are similar to
those of metal-poor globular clusters in our dwarf galaxies. Thus, it is
conceivable that this galaxy has no nucleus at all.
VCC 9.This galaxy has fainter surface brightness than galaxies in the same
magnitude range, and a flat core. There are two bright clusters within 2" from
the center, but nothing at the center of the isophotes.
