Re:NGC 5068
NGC 5068 (Fig. 13) has strong radio emission from the small bar and
star-forming regions. Weak polarization has been detected at {lambda}6 cm
in the southern part.

Re:NGC 5068
NGC 5068 -- From five giant HII regions surveyed by D'Odorico et al.
(1983) in this galaxy, two exhibit a broad emission feature at the blue
WR bump.

Re:NGC 5068
NGC 5068. The H II regions in the stellar bar are unevenly distributed along
the major axis but are also present in the entire stellar bar. The dust
distribution in the bar is quite complex, with lanes crossing the bar
perpendicularly. The stellar bar is much larger than the H{alpha} bar. The
global O/H gradient the galaxy appears relatively shallow (-0.046 dex kpc^-1^;
Ryder 1995).

The angular size of NGC 5068 is large at
D_25_ = 6.9'. It is highly resolved into HII-region
candidates and individual brightest stars that
could be as bright as B = 18.5 but which must be
individually separated from the HII-region
candidates before the data can be interpreted.
Star formation is occurring in the bar. Many
classical OB associations can be identified in the
arms. The largest HII region resolves at a
diameter (halo) of about 4". The redshift of
NGC 5068 is v_o = 443 km/s.

Re:NGC 5068
Here is yet another example of how lopsided the H II region distribution
in late-type spirals can be, even those exhibiting well-organized spiral
structure. A number of giant H II region complexes to the west are
visible even in blue light photographs (e.g., SB88), but only two such
objects are found in the eastern arms. Several much fainter and diffuse
H II regions do help fill out the star-forming disk and trace the spiral
pattern. After continuum subtraction, the bar is still quite prominent in
H{alpha} due to a thin chain of H II regions running across the small
bulge. McCall, Rybski, & Shields (1985) have measured oxygen abundances
in four H II regions in NGC 5068.
This is one of two galaxies in this atlas (the other being NGC 2835)
also included in the photographic atlas of Hodge & Kennicutt (1983). A
comparison with their microfiche reproductions illustrates the
substantial gain in contrast and sensitivity recently made possible with
improved imaging systems.
