Re:NGC 5653
A17. NGC 5653 NGC 5653 (Fig. 1q) is an isolated spiral galaxy classified
as a lopsided galaxy (Rudnick et al. 2000). The H{alpha} emission is
distributed along the spiral arms and the brightest H II regions are
located ~10" (~2.6 kpc) west of the nucleus. The Pa{alpha} distribution
in NGC 5653 derived from HST/NICMOS observations (Alonso-Herrero et
al. 2002) shows nearly identical features to our H{alpha} image: bright
H II regions to the west of the nucleus and no bright nuclear emission.

The surface brightness of the multiple-arm
pattern over the inner disk of NGC 5653 is
exceedingly high. Most of the detail of these arms
is burned out in the main print. The five arm
fragments, resembling a pinwheel, are seen in the
insert. Very faint, smooth outer arms are visible
in the overprinted main image here.
The redshift is v_o = 3587 km/s.
The insert print showing the main multiple
spiral arms of NGC 5653 has been made from a
different original plate than the one used for the
main print. Both plates were taken with the
Mount Wilson 100-inch Hooker reflector.

Re:NGC 5653
Very bright nucleus. Bright pseudo (r): 0.17 arcmin x 0.1 arcmin in a bright
part: 0.5 arcmin x 0.4 arcmin. Several, bright, knotty arms. Faint, smooth
pseudo (R): 1.05 arcmin x 0.85 arcmin.
Heidelberg Veroff. Vol. 9, 1926 and Lund 9 dimensions are for the bright
part only.
HA 88, 2 classification (E:) is an error.

noted by C. D. Shane on a 20-inch astrograph plate.
