Re:NGC 6384
NGC 6384 (C)
There is very little circumnuclear dust, and the dust lanes are nearly
straight. This may be due to inclination, but as only one of these
dust lanes has any curvature, it does not meet the requirements for a
nuclear dust spiral.

Re:NGC 6384
The morphological classification as determined by us is indicated in
parentheses next to the galaxy name, with our "chaotic circumnuclear
dust" (C) category now not including those galaxies with obvious dust
lanes (DL). Where the classification has already been made by Martini
et al. (2003), we indicate this with "-mp."

Re:NGC 6384
NGC 6384.---SBbc: Very elliptical bulge threaded by a short, prominent
bar. The bulge isophotes show a clear (if small) isophotal twist such
that the outer bulge isophotes are aligned with the bar major axis.
The bulge/bar system is embedded in a lens, with a flocculent spiral
pattern emerging from the lens. A large number of armlets are
visible. The armlets are typically smooth, with no strong evidence of
knots or dust lanes.

Re:NGC 6384
NGC 6384: our two methods agree between them and we have
adopted the average of their values. Our IA values agree
well with the photometric ones, while the PA does so
reasonably well. The IA given by Prieto et al. (1992) seems
more reliable than that of Sanchez-Portal et al. (2000),
since the data extend further out in the region which is
less influenced by the oval bar. This agrees with the mean
of our values. The PA we adopt is somewhat higher than
those given by the photometry. The deprojected catalog,
however, has a round shape and thus we keep our values.

Re:NGC 6384
NGC 6384. - Following the NVSS nondetection, we also do not detect
(compact) radio emission from NGC 6384. However, Condon (1987), at
1.49 GHz and 1.2' resolution, found the radio source, having 35 mJy, to
be very extended.

Re:NGC 6384
NGC 6384 - SN 1971L: a blue arc-shaped patch is present just close to
the center of the section and is brighter than the 3{sigma} detection
limit. HST images resolve the underlying spiral structure and several
compact sources of emission are present within the uncertainty ring.
Some structure is seen around the nominal position of the SN.

Dust lane across nucleus. The bulgelike structure is embedded in an
early-type bar and is fitted by the sum of two exponentials: an inner
component, reported in table 2, and an outer component (equivalent
R_e_ ~ 10"). The two exponential components are morphologically

NGC 6384 would have a nearly identical appearance to NGC 3642 on
the preceding panel if it were viewed more nearly face on.
There is a smooth inner central bulge and an inner lens devoid of
star formation. The MAS pattern begins tangent to the rim of the

NGC 6384
The most interesting feature is the CO distribution; no emission is
detected in the center but a ring or spiral arm is seen several kpc from
the center (see Fig. 1). The spectrum is the sum of two points, (-28, -28)
and (-42, -42). NGC 6384 may bear some resemblance to M31 or M81 judging
from the size, velocity width, and S_60_/S_100_ ratio (very low). The
distances are so different, however, that the scales seen are difficult
to compare.

This and the two galaxies shown in the panels immediately
to the right form an intermediate group between the multiple-arm
systems like NGC 2841 and NGC 0488 of the Sb and the
M101 group of the Sc section. The arms in NGC 6384 are thin
and tightly wound about an amorphous nuclear region.
There is a distinct bar of enhanced surface brightness
crossing the central lens along the major axis of the spiral
pattern. NGC 6384 is a transition case to SBb.
