Re:NGC 5962
NGC 1084, 4698, 4962, 5962 and 6753. There are some non-barred galaxies
in the sample whose decompositions were improved by modelling ovals by
a Ferrers function. As an example the decomposition for NGC 6753 is
shown in Fig. 2(b) (see the online version). In this case, the oval has
a relatively low surface brightness and cannot be directly
distinguished in the profile. However, it is prominent in direct images
and divides the zone between bright nuclear and outer rings (see
Crocker et al. 1996).
The decomposition remained unsatisfactory for the galaxies NGC 4487,
4900, 2139 and 4618. Characteristic for all these galaxies is that they
have little or no bulge, or that the bulge has very low surface
brightness in comparison with that of the disc. As an example, the
decomposition of NGC 4487 is shown in Fig. 2(b) (the online version).
For this galaxy, the bulge model has a very large shape parameter (n =
5), which appears immediately after giving the initial parameters of
the fit. Such a centrally peaked extended bulge is the only solution
for this galaxy, but it is not clear whether the solution is physically
reasonable. At least it is not intuitively expected in the profile,
where the bulge does not look very prominent. Among the sample galaxies
there is also one galaxy, NGC 4900, having a strong Freeman type II
profile, which makes it impossible to fit any usual global disc model,
unless a truncated disc is assumed. In this study, the radial
scalelength of the disc for this galaxy was estimated from the outer
regions of the disc, whereas the bulge model was extracted using the
inner portions of the image. The decomposition was uncertain also for
the two late-type spirals, NGC 2139 and 4618, both having an asymmetric
disc. NGC 4618 is a prototypical one-armed SBm spiral (de Vaucouleurs &
Freeman 1972) and most probably has no bulge at all.

Re:NGC 5962
NGC 5962.---SBab: Small, slightly elliptical bulge, threaded by a
high-contrast bar. The bar P.A. is skewed ~60deg from the bulge major
axis. Spiral arms commence from the ends of the bar and form an almost
complete inner pseudoring before opening. The arms are fairly low
contrast and patchy. Past the ring, they can only be followed for
~90deg before they fade into the outer disk. The outer disk has the
same P.A. as the bulge.

Re:NGC 5962
NGC 5962: Nancay profiles of this galaxy (V = 1957 km s^-1^,
I_HI_ = 16 Jy km s^-1^) will be slightly confused by UGC 9925, a
B_T_ 15.4 mag Sc spiral due south of it. Arecibo H I profiles of UGC 9925
(Lewis et al. 1985; Sulentic & Arp 1983), which are certainly not confused
by NGC 5962 due to the small HPBW, show it has V = 1916 km s^-1^,
FWHM = 182 km s^-1^ and I_HI_ = 1.9 Jy km s^-1^. One Green Bank observation
(Magri 1994) has a much smaller line flux (7.0 Jy km s^-1^) than the
average 16 Jy km s^-1^ found in 7 other studies.

NGC 5962 is similar to NGC 5055 (p. 15) of the Sb systems.
The central regions are of high surface brightness.
Spiral structure is present in the inner regions and can
be traced to within 0.7 mm (radius) from the nucleus on
this illustration. The outer set of multiple arms are of low
surface brightness.

(Plate 23)
The inset shows the nucleus and inner ring which
begins to break up at this stage, and from which
extend the many knotty anf filamentary arms.
Only weak traces remain of the outer ring structure.
Compare with NGC 1084 (Plate 19), NGC 6753 (Plate 22),
and NGC 6643 (Plate 24).
