Re:KKH 046
The galaxy looks like a group of blue star-like condensations embedded
in a common envelope of low surface brightness. It has a corrected radial
velocity of +409 km s^-1^ (Karachentsev et al. 2001a). There are no
other galaxies with close radial velocities within a projected separation
of 1.5 Mpc. KKH 46 can be treated as an example of a very isolated dwarf
system, where the ongoing star formation process is not initiated by
external tidal perturbations.
