6 note(s) found in NED.


1. 2002ApJS..143...73E
Re:NGC 5078
NGC 5078.---Sa: System close to edge-on. Bright elliptical bulge,
clearly cut by an absorption lane to the SW. (The major axis is
roughly NW-SE). A feature resembling a bar is probably the edge-on
disk. Very large B/D ratio, with no clear evidence of structure aside
from the prominent dust lane. At low surface brightness levels, the
isophotes take on a pointy-box morphology typical of disk systems with
boxy bulges.

2. 1996ApJS..103...81C
Re:NGC 5078
NGC 5078.--Radio jets or superwinds emerging normal to the disk plane from the
nucleus. Compact radio core flux density S = 188 mJy at 1.49 GHz (Mollenhoff,
Hummel, & Bender 1992). The nearby galaxy IC 0879 at optical position
{alpha} = 13h16m55.0s, {delta} = -27^deg^10'00" (Lauberts 1982) is radio quiet.

Re:NGC 5078
Plate 1484
Strong dust lane, similar to NGC 4594. Near edge of plate.
Plate 2347
Overexposed center, dust lane. I879 2.3 south-preceding. Many other faint
galaxies near.

6. 1964RC1...C...0000d
Re:NGC 5078
Very bright diffuse nucleus in bright bulge with a very strong, dark lane.
Edge-on. Similar to NGC 4594 or NGC 5746.
Non-interacting pair with IC 0879 at 2.3 arcmin.
