Re:VCC 0575
VCC 575 (NGC 4318).This galaxy shows a clear structure in the stellar
population. At a distance of about 4" from the center, a stellar disk or wide
ring sets in; the ring is brighter than the region within it, causing a kink in
the surface brightness profile. It is possible that the ring is actually the
result of a spiral structure, although the spiral "arms" do not appear to extend
all the way to the center of the galaxy. The ring might be similar to the
structure seen edge-on in other galaxies, for instance VCC 1938, where an outer
"disk" is present but does not extend all the way to the center. Although there
is no structure associated with the ring/truncated disk in the color image, this
does show a thin, edge-on red disk extending approximately 2&farcs;5 across the
nucleus.
