NGC 4765 is just outside the boundary of
the Virgo Cluster survey region (Binggeli,
Sandage, and Tammann 1985). The region is
complex; it is near the supergalactic ridge-line in
a confused kinematic area where redshifts do not
The redshift is v_o = 626 km/s. Resolution
into knots is visible at the periphery of the disk.
It is probable that such resolution is present
throughout the disk but is hidden by the high
The morphological classification is uncertain.
Looks like a dwarf elliptical
with a very faint extension to the southeast.
Nucleus is approximately 8 arcsec in diameter.

MCG +01-33-020 = NGC 4765; 13m.
Dwarf satellite connected to the primary by a short thin filament,
mostly normal to the surface of the latter. Primary appears to be
spheroidal, not spiral. Satellite appears to have broken the link and
to be receding.
(= NGC 4765)
Compact elliptical blue object.
Extremely bright. Not resolved. Classification is doubtful; perhaps it is an
I0 (supported by Yerkes classification E?4 or Ip).
