This is a typical case of a close to edge-on disc galaxy showing a rapidly
rotating component (Paper III) and a double sign reversal in h_3_, indicating a
central bar (Bureau & Athanassoula 2005). The metal line strength gradients are
regular and appear to be consistent with the isophotes.
No emission is detected in this galaxy, which is almost certainly seen edge-on
given the extreme inclination of its nuclear stellar disc (Krajnovic & Jaffe
NGC 5308: This is a typical case of a close to edge-on disc galaxy

This early Mount Wilson 60-inch plate of
NGC 5308 by Francis Pease shows a bright
central region (burned out in this print),
surrounded by a boxy envelope (which is the
high-surface-brightness bulge seen in this print), and
an extremely thin, moderately bright disk, which
has almost as high a surface brightness as the
