The galaxy morphology is perturbed, as well as the velocity field where
streaming motions are revealed along the multiple spiral arms. Notice the strong
Z shape of the velocities due to the presence of the bar. This galaxy has a
misalignment between photometric and kinematical major axes.
NGC 4519 (SBd, 1"~80 pc, I=36.5^deg^)
No isophotal twist is found inside the bar region of this late-type galaxy.

NGC 4519 is near NGC 4472, which is the
central galaxy of subcluster B of the Virgo
Cluster (Binggeli, Tammann, and Sandage
1987). It is illustrated in the Atlas of Virgo
Cluster Spiral Galaxies (Sandage, Binggeli, and
Tammann 1985a), where it can be compared
with other cluster members because all images
are enlarged to a common scale.
The spiral pattern is similar to that in
NGC 4597, below, and NGC 5398, shown in the two
prints at the right. A central bar exists from
which the arms spring, but the arms exist on both
sides of the ends of the bar. It is the same pattern
of a broken (incomplete) ring seen in earlier
barred SBa and SBb(rs) types, but the stellar
content is much later in NGC 4519 here and in
the two remaining galaxies on this page.
Many HII regions exist in the bar and in the
arms of NGC 4519. The largest of these resolve
at about the 2" level. The redshift is v_o = 1094
km/s, close to the adopted mean redshift of the
Not a double galaxy as stated in CGCG. The close neighbour is a Zwicky
galaxy of its own (i.e., is included in CGCG, namely VCC 1501 = NGC 4519A).
