Re:NGC 5838
This boxy galaxy is a strong rotator and Peletier et al. (1990) show that the
bulge of this galaxy contains old stellar populations with small colour
gradients, except for the inner 2 arcsec. This is consistent with our line
strength maps which show regular gradients and a mild peak of the H{beta} map in
the very centre. There is evidence for the Mg b contours being flatter than the
isophotes. Our emission-line maps (see Paper V) also show significant detection
in the centre with evidence for a rotating structure.

Re:NGC 5838
Another S0 galaxy with a very regular dust disc. Considering the small scale of
the disc and the effects of atmospheric blurring, the observed gas distribution
and kinematics are remarkably similar to those of NGC 4459 and 4526.

Re:NGC 5838
NGC 5838: This boxy galaxy is a strong rotator, with a double sign
reversal in h_3_. Minor-axis spectra of Falcon-Barroso et al. (2003)
show a small amount of rotation, very probably due to the extinction
produced by a dust lane most prominent on the south-west side within 3
arcsec of the centre.

Re:UGC 09692
F15029+0217 appears to be the correct identification despite the large
optical/FSC offset.

Re:NGC 5838
NGC 5838: The thick nuclear dust ring partly occults the nucleus and
compromises the Nuker fit for the bulge. We were unable to improve the fit
by masking out the dust ring. No estimate of the nuclear point source is
given. A second concentric dust ring at larger radii is visible on archival
optical images, and it can be faintly seen in the H-band residual image.

Re:NGC 5838
NGC 5838. - We have detected a slightly resolved 2.2 mJy source.
NVSS detected 3.0 mJy, while Wrobel & Heeschen (1991) report a 2 mJy
source (5 GHz, 5" resolution): the nuclear radio source in NGC 5838 must
have a flat radio spectrum. Our recent subarcsecond-resolution 8.4 GHz
images have confirmed this object's compactness.
There is also an unrelated, unresolved 1.3 mJy source, about 1.5'
to the south of NGC 5838. The POSS plates reveal an 18.4 mag starlike
object at that position, for which as yet no redshift is available.

A low-surface-brightness, extended outer disk surrounds the
central E0 bulge of NGC 5838. The form is similar to what might be
expected if NGC 1553 or NGC 3056 on the preceding panel were viewed
more nearly edge on.
Breaks in the smooth luminosity in the middle part of the
low-surface-brightness disk require the S0_2_ subtype. The large
extent and the very shallow luminosity gradient of the disk is
unusual. Baade (1963) called the type S0(b), in support of his view
that a complete S0 sequence existed parallel to the normal spiral
a,b,c sequence, once gas is stripped from their disks. (See also van
den Bergh, l976a, for the same supposition.) NGC 5838 is one of the
few S0 galaxies that has been used to support such a revision. A
refutation of the suggestion, based on the distribution of surface
brightness of the various spiral types, is given in the description of
NGC 2902 (S0_1_; panel 30) and in more detail elsewhere (Sandage
However, NGC 5838 and the few like it having large,
low-surface-brightness disks do not provide evidence for a parallel S0
sequence, because their central bulges are of much higher surface
brightness than those of Sb, Sc, and Sd galaxies. There are no
examples in the RSA of S0 galaxies that could once have been like M33
(Sc; panel 262) or NGC 300 (Sc; panels 261, S6), which have no large,
bright central bulge characteristic of all S0 galaxies.

Re:NGC 5838
NGC 5838: There is evidence of spiral pattern in the outer regions of
the disk of this strongly inclined S0.
