Re:SBS 1657+590A
SBS 1657+590A - also known as NGC 6285 is a merger (Petrosian et al. 2002) with
a LINER nucleus. It forms a physical pair with SBS 1657+590B. The position angle
of a line connecting the nuclei of both galaxies is ~40 degrees. The relatively
strong radio source (149 mJy at 1.4 GHz) is unresolved with the NVSS beam (45")
but clearly resolved with the beam of the FIRST survey (Becker et al. 1985) and
is extended along PA ~40 degrees. Possibly this is a result of gravitational
interaction between this galaxy pair. The upper limit in HI corresponds to ~3 x
10^9^ M_sun_ (assuming a line width of 200 km s^-1^) which is not unusual for
spiral galaxies.

Re:NGC 6285
C-51 = NGC 6285+6286. (E,G,N) Clear tidal interaction between this close
pair (1.5' separation), and both have debris highly inclined to their
central planes. More southern NGC 6286 is the more obvious PRG candidate
(according to PRC), while Reshetnikov & Combes (1994) and Reshetnikov et
al. (1996) interpret it as a spiral (as opposed to the regular, S0-type,
central PRG discs) with a ring of a size comparable to that of the
galaxy in an early stage of formation, rotating in an orthogonal plane,
accompanied by accretion onto NGC 6285. Deep CCD images show filaments
between the systems (see PRC). NGC 6285 H{alpha} velocity field and
surface photometry: see Reshetnikov et al. (1993b, 1995, 1996).
Near-infrared imaging shows the mildly disturbed morphology of NGC 6286,
whose major axis H{alpha} rotation curve looks regular (Smith et al.
1996). Near-infrared spectra: Smith et al. (1996), Goldader et al.
1997a); resulting starburst model: see Goldader et al. (1997b). Optical
spectra show that NGC 6285 has an H II-type spectrum and a complex
H{alpha} velocity field, while NGC 6286 is a LINER (Carrasco et al.
1997; Veilleux et al. 1995; Kim et al. 1995). One other galaxy was
found in the Nancay search area: UGC 10646, a 14.8 mag elliptical of
unknown redshift and 1.3' diameter, at 12.2' distance.

Re:NGC 6285
NGC 6285 (Arp 293)
The rotation curve along the minor axis of the galaxy looks very
peculiar: the emitting gas do not show systematic rotation within 10"
(3.7 kpc) from the nucleus. H{alpha} and [N II] {lambda}6583 emission
lines demonstrate different behaviour on the southeast side. Probably, we
observe an early stage of ring formation. The outer parts accreted from
the companion (NGC 6286), are still not settled in regular rotation
around the galaxy, while the inner, denser regions of accreted matter
show signs of rotation. Using the northwest part of rotation curve, we
found the following crude estimation of M/L_B_ ratio within 20" (7.4 kpc)
= 2.4 f_sun_.
