NGC 5885 is a beautifully symmetric
barred spiral, similar to but not quite as regular
as its ScI counterpart NGC 1232 (Sc; panels
216, S13), or more closely similar to NGC 3184
(Sc; panels 237, S5) or IC 5332 (Sc; panel 259).
The bar is short. The two principal inner
arms spring from the ends of the bar, as in
NGC 1300 (SBb; panels 154, S8). They then branch
into the thick multiple-armed structure in the
outer regions.
Many HII regions exist, defining the centers
of the luminous arms. The regions are unresolved
at the 0.7" level. The redshift of NGC 5885 is
v_o = 1879 km/s.

Re:NGC 5885
Small, bright nucleus. Very faint bar. (r): 0.55 arcmin x 0.1 arcmin.
Several filamentary, branching arms.
HA 88, 2 dimensions (2.0 arcmin x 2.0 arcmin, after Helwan 30) are for the
bright part only. Lund 10 dimensions (3.7 arcmin x 4.0 arcmin) may be a
misprint for 3.7 arcmin x 3.0 arcmin.
