C-09 = NGC 0442. (E,G,N) Has a dust lane perpendicular to the major
axis, and two short spikes on either side of the galaxy; surface
photometry: see PRC. Not detected at Nancay or Effelsberg, but detected
at Green Bank. The only other object found within the Nancay search area
is IRAS F01119-0128, of unknown redshift, with a flux density of 3.6 Jy
at 100micron wavelength, at a distance of 10.6'.
NGC 0442. A bright star nearby causes a gradient in the background around
the galaxy. External ellipses were contaminated by the star light. The
extrapolated magnitude is not accurate enough to be included in the
C-9 = NGC 442. NED reports no companions within the GB 140' beam that
are at a redshift consistent with this marginal detection of 2.1 x 10^9^
M_sun_ of H I.
