April 14/15, 1937
On the original Mount Wilson 100-inch plate of NGC 5061 used
here, there is a very weak suggestion of an incipient disk similar to
that in NGC 3414 (S0/a; panels 50, 53) but much more subtle. The high
southern declination of this galaxy at -26^deg^ gives a large zenith
angle at Mount Wilson. The weak suggestion of a disk (which would
require an E/S0 classification) requires better plate material.
Boxy isophotes (C4 >~-0.02).
NGC 5061 - two Sc galaxies within 4', probably background.
Overexposed center, very faint slightly dist corona, extremely faint plume
to companion 3.8 north-preceding. Others near. Bright star 2.3 following.
=ESO 508- G 38
Very bright, diffuse nucleus.
