Re:NGC 0521
NGC 0521.-This is the largest and brightest spiral in our sample
(M_B_=-20.11). Classified as an SBsc(r) (cz_Hel_=5018 km s^-1^ ), has a
diameter of 65 kpc, twice that of the Milky Way. Its central disk
surface brightness is {mu}_0_(B)=21.7 mag arcsec^-2^, so it is an HSB
galaxy. It has visible spiral arms and a prominent bulge with a scale
length of 720 pc in the R band. The bulge is quite red (B-R=1.64 ), with
almost no difference in color with the overall galaxy (LSB 059 in Galaz
et al. 2006). The near-IR color J-K_s_=0.74 suggests a metallic bulge.
It has a large amount of H I (43.7 x 10^8^ m_sun). However, as discussed
below, this is not a large amount considering the remarkable size of the
galaxy. It is detected by IRAS in 60 and 100 microns, with fluxes of
about 0.65 and 3.16 Jy, respectively. It has a noticeable nuclear bar
which does not however extend too far through the disk.

Re:NGC 0521
NGC 521. This source was not detected in the NVSS. 1.4 GHz, 0.2'
resolution observations of Hummel et al. (1985) give an upper limit of
4 mJy to any radio emission. We have detected a slightly resolved ~0.5
mJy core in the optical nucleus of the galaxy.
The NGC 521 field also shows two other sources to the southeast (~3')
and northeast (~3'), which we have designated as NGC 521SE and NGC 521NE,
respectively. NGC 521SE has been identified with the 17.6 mJy NVSS
source J012437+014112. It is also seen on both the red and blue APM
plates as a stellar object with blue magnitude 21.74. NGC 521NE has
been identified with the 5.7 mJy NVSS source J012443+014535. However,
there is no optical identification on either the red or blue APM plate.

NGC 521 is the earliest of the SBc galaxies
in this atlas, close to the edge of the SBbc
morphological section. It may form a physical pair
with NGC 533 (E3; panel 8) at a separation of
14.5'. The redshifts are v_o(521) = 5223 km/s
and v_o(533) = 5664 km/s. At a mean redshift
distance of 109 Mpc (H = 50) the projected
linear separation is 460 kpc if the association is
real. NGC 533 is the brightest member of a rich
group of fainter E and S0 galaxies within a radius
of about 20'.
