Re:NGC 4290
NGC 4290: Suggested by Marquez et al. (1999), though they labeled it as
"uncertain". Their near-IR ellipse fits show an ellipticity peak, but without a
stationary position angle, so a nuclear spiral is a possiblity.
Higher-resolution images are needed.

Re:NGC 4290
NGC 4290 (UGC 7402)
The K' image shows the bar, spiral arms and a large weak external ring
(Fig. 25a); the central isophotes are twisted relative to the bar. The
sharp-divided image seems to show a small structure in the center at
PA = 90^deg^ (Fig. 25b); the bar and spiral arms are clearly seen.
These structures appear even more strongly in the difference image
(Fig. 25c). The {epsilon} and PA variations are also consistent with
the existence of two bars (Fig. 25e); however, it is difficult to say if
the small structure in the center is really a small bar within the bar
because it is thick and faint.
The bulge + disk fits are good except in the bar and spiral arm regions
(Figs. 25f and 25g). The J/K' image and the color gradient are very
smooth, with a slightly redder nucleus (Figs. 25d and 25h).

= Holm 373a
Pair with NGC 4284 (Holm 373b), Sc?, at 4.5 arcmin

See UGC 07393
Companion 3.8, 97, 0.9 x 0.2

5. 1964RC1...C...0000d
Re:NGC 4290
= Holm 373a
Very small, very bright nucleus. Bright bar. Pseudo (r): 0.9 arcmin x
0.65 arcmin.
Pair with NGC 4284 (Sc? = Holm 373b) at 4.5 arcmin (with small correction to
NGC Dec. of NGC 4284).
