VCC 1062 (NGC 4442).This galaxy appears quite regular within the inner 15".
Beyond, the isophotes become boxy, and a faint elongated outer envelope
dominates the galaxy's appearance. This is slightly tilted (toward south)
relative to the inner regions, causing the isophotes to twist slightly. The
images show no strong evidence of a morphologically distinct nucleus.

The tilt of the central bright bulge of NGC
4442 by about 15 deg to the extended flattened
envelope necessitates the SB0 classification.
