S0_1_(2) or cD
April 3/4, 1981
This galaxy with an extended outer envelope
is not an elliptical but is less extreme in its S0
profile than NGC 2902 or NGC 5011 on this
page, or NGC 1553 and NGC 3056 on panels 39
and 53. The E0 classification in the RC2, based
on a weak Mount Wilson 100-inch plate, is not
= PKS 1250-10
Non-interacting pair with NGC 4757 at 12 arcmin

vdB - E2
Morg - kD2
deV - E0 or S0-
Classification of E0 from a weak plate is doubtful, probably the nucleus of an
S0 (confirmed by Yerkes classification kD2).
All dimensions except HA 88, 4 are for the bright inner part or nucleus.
Non-interacting pair with NGC 4757 at 12 arcmin.
Round; 0.5' in diameter, growing rapidly brighter toward the center; no spiral
