VCC 1242 (NGC 4474).This galaxy resembles VCC 685 but for the presence of dust.
Very elongated system, with a large-scale edge-on stellar disk typical of S0
galaxies. The presence of the disk affects the B4 coefficient, which becomes
positive beyond a few arcsec, and the galaxy appears bluer in the equatorial
plane. A nucleus is visible in both of the individual images and is reflected in
the shape of the surface brightness profiles in the inner 0.3". The galaxy has a
significantly larger GC system compared to galaxies in the same magnitude range.

NGC 4474 is in the Virgo Cluster and in
subcluster A centered near NGC 4486. The
central bulge is large and is E2-like. The disk has
high surface brightness, is definite, and is very
NGC 4474: This is another case of "E - like S0".
