Notes for object IC 3019

4 note(s) found in NED.


1. 2006ApJS..165...57C
Re:VCC 0009
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.

Re:VCC 0009
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.

Re:VCC 0009
VCC 9. This galaxy has a very low surface brightness for its reported
luminosity.
