NGC 5074 has a small angular diameter
(D_25_ = 1.0') and moderately high surface brightness
in its inner region. This region contains a
bar and two bright arms that start from the ends
of the bar. One arm remains bright for about
one-quarter revolution; the other remains bright
only for a short stub of a beginning. A fainter,
low-surface-brightness outer arm surrounds the
inner region.
The redshift of NGC 5074 is v_o = 5675 km/s;
the absolute magnitude is bright, at M_B_ = -21.3.
