NGC 4825 has a two-zone image, whose S0
characteristic is the slightly extended envelope
covering an E3 elliptical bulge. Very faint indications
of dust (a rudimentary S0_3_ ring?) is the
reason for the S0_1/2_ classification.
The galaxy is in a very rich field which
undoubtedly is a group having NGC 4825 as its
dominant member. The E4 galaxy seen in the
print here has a separation from NGC 4825 of
50". At the redshift distance of 85 Mpc
[v_o(4825) = 4236 km/s; H = 50], the projected
linear separation of the companion would be
small, at 21 kpc, if they are at the same distance,
as seems likely. A dE dwarf candidate companion
is in the lower-right corner of the print.
In a group with NGC 4820, NGC 4823, NGC 4829 and others;
S0 sp south-preceding.
