Re:NGC 6286
NGC 6286. The optical and 2MASS images reveal this observation to be of an
edge-on spiral. The asymmetric line profile was best fitted by three Gaussians,
although it is likely to be simply a double-horned spectrum that was observed
off of the CO emission center. Indeed, the CO J = 1-0 line profile appears more
symmetric, although the presence of more than one peak is difficult to determine
given the noise. (SSS91).

Re:IRAS 16577+5900
IRAS 16577+5900 (NGC 6286 + NGC 6285): The system consists of two disk
galaxies separated by a projected distance of 32 kpc. A faint bridge of
emission between the galaxies is a clear sign of this interaction. The
galaxy located to the southeast (NGC 6286) looks like an edge-on disk
galaxy. The inner parts of the disk are clearly disrupted by the
interaction. Toward the southeast, a separated region of relatively
strong emission seems to be part of the tidal tail connecting the two
galaxies. The galaxy to the northwest (NGC 6285) has a spiral
structure. Its inner 7 kpc shows a rather inhomogenous and irregular
structure, likely due to the effects of the internal extinction, as well
as the presence of several knots (clusters), especially toward the
west. The spiral arm at the northwest seems to connect with a tidal tail
whose onset is at the south of the nucleus and bends in the same
direction as the spiral arm.

Re:NGC 6286
5.2.11. NGC 6286
NGC 6286 is an edge-on spiral in an interacting pair with the spiral
NGC 6285 ~ 1.5' to the northwest (Fig. 12). The optical extension of
NGC 6286 is 1.3' x 1.2' (Nilson 1973). Unfortunately, the long axis of our
array was aligned almost perpendicular to the long axis of the galaxy, and
we do not get nearly as much information about FIR emission along the disk
as we might have had if the detector array was in a more favorable
alignment. Filaments and plumes seen in deep CCD images as well as a faint
shell-like feature extending about 0.5' to the east-southeast of NGC 6286
(barely visible in our DSS image) cause Whitmore et al. (1990) to brand
NGC 6286 a possible polar ring galaxy.
Despite the poor position angle, NGC 6286 may have been resolved along
the polar axis (Fig. 12). The flux in detector 3 is well above the PSP, and
the IRAS flux is not recovered in a point source. The D_g_ = 21", while the
D_e_ = 12". The sum of detector 1-10 fluxes matches the IRAS flux well. The
fact that the emission is still resolved although the galaxy disk is not
aligned with our array suggests that the extended FIR emission is likely to
be associated with some nondisk component. In this respect, we note that
detector 3, which sits on the shell-like feature to the east-southeast, is
well above the point-source profile. Using the size of 12", our flux for
detectors 1-10 at 100 microns and a flux from Surace et al. (1993) for
NGC 6286 that excludes the contribution from NGC 6285 at 60 microns, we get
the lowest dust temperature of our sample of T_d_ = 28.6 (when we also use
the 1.25 mm value from Carico et al. 1992 to get n = 1.77). Our optical
depth measurement of {tau}_100_ = 3.2 x 10^-2^ translates into an
A_V_ = 24.
Aside from the large deviation from a point source in detector 3, the
FIR emission can be attributed to a nuclear bulge, leaving little evidence
for disk emission. Radio maps (CHSS; CHYT) show only slight emission from
the disk as well.
The q-value for NGC 6286 is 2.01, which is slightly lower than those of
most other galaxies. Our higher resolution observations confirm that
NGC 6285 is not responsible for the anomaly. Lonsdale et al. (1993)
classify NGC 6286 (misnamed NGC 6285 in their paper) as H II spectral type,
but Veilleux et al. (1995) classify it as having a LINER spectrum, so it
is possible that NGC 6286 contains a weak AGN core, which adds extra radio
flux and lowers the q-value from the strong starburst.

Re:NGC 6286
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:UGC 10647
3.18. UGC 10647
Also known as NGC 6286, this galaxy is a pair with NGC 6285; the separation is
1.5' (30 kpc). UGC 10641, at a similar redshift, is at 4.6' (100 kpc), and
several other galaxies in the same velocity interval are found within 1 Mpc. In
the near-infrared, the galaxy has the appearance of an edge-on spiral with a
disturbed morphology. Diffuse emission is observed to the southeast of the
galaxy; the galaxy itself has an asymmetric light profile. Br{gamma} and H_2_
line emission may be present.
