Re:NGC 5905
NGC 5905 (Fig. 5l).-The ring is small but complete in H{alpha}. It consists of
nine H II regions and is relatively flat with respect to age (except for one H
II region). There appears to be no correlation in age with respect to the bar
contact points.

Re:NGC 5905
4.2.4 NGC 5905 - This is the most distant source in the sample. The level of net
counts (40) is low, precluding the extraction of a useful spectrum. Both X-ray
colours are quite soft, suggesting a source with {GAMMA} ~ 2.5. In the
colour-colour diagram of Fig. 7 this source is located in the low-mass X-ray
binary (LMXB) region.

Re:NGC 5905
NGC 5905. This source was identified as an H II/starburst galaxy six
years after its RASS detection (Bade et al. 1996; Komossa & Bade
1999). However, higher spatial resolution spectroscopy with HST revealed
narrow, high-ionization lines originating from the nucleus (Gezari et
al. 2003). These imply the presence of a low-luminosity Seyfert 2
nucleus that was swamped by the surrounding H II emission in the
previous observations. Gezari et al. (2003) used the correlation between
H{alpha} and soft X-ray luminosity described by Halderson et al. (2001)
to estimate the soft X-ray luminosity of the nucleus to be L_0.1-2.4_~ 9
x 10^38^ erg s^-1^ (erratum of Gezari et al. 2003), a factor < 3 lower
than the X-ray luminosity actually observed by Chandra.

Re:NGC 5905
NGC 5905: Suggested as double-barred by Wozniak et al. (1995); the proposed
inner bar is near the limits of their resolution, and could be due to the
nuclear ring they also report. Higher-resolution images, preferably near-IR, are

Re:NGC 5905
NGC 5905. The secondary bar of NGC 5905 is confirmed on H- and K-images with
the same value for the maximum ellipticity (no J-image). At the end of the
secondary bar a very red circumnuclear ring appears in the H - K colour map.
This ring is correlated with the H{alpha} and the blue B - I ring observed in
Paper I. However, the reddest part of the H - K ring (H - K ~ 0.8) does not
coincide with the bluest regions of the B - I ring (B - I ~ 1.8) contrary to
most galaxies with nuclear rings. NGC 5905 is one of our two cases with such
phenomenon (cf. NGC 6951).

The thin arms in NGC 5905 spring from the
ends of the well-defined bar and are so tightly
wound as to nearly overlap after each unwinds by
half a revolution. Each becomes a thin outer arm
of high surface brightness that can be traced for
another half revolution outward, beyond which
they continue but at much lower surface brightness.
Fragmentary secondary arms exist over the
outer face.
The redshift is v_o = 3544 km/s. The
numerous HII regions are unresolved at the 1"
