A6 NGC 4339
NGC 4339 is a member of the Virgo cluster and classified as E0 in RC3 and
S0 1/2 in RSA, this galaxy is intermediate between an elliptical and S0
For this galaxy, the most striking result is a large positive value of
h_4_ at almost all radii for both the major and minor axis. For most
measurements h_3_ is non-zero along the major axis and consistent with
zero for the minor axis (see Fig. A6).

The outer envelope of NGC 4339 beginning
at an apparent edge to the central bulge is
evident on this print. The morphology is clearly S0
because of the departure of the outer luminosity
profile from that of an E galaxy. (NGC 4339's is
shallower.) The classification of E0 in the RC2,
based on a weak Mount Wilson 100-inch plate, is
not supported here from this Las Campanas
NGC 4339: Because of the photometric profile, the S0 classification of
the RSA has been preferred.
