103aO + GG385
The angular separation of the companion
from NGC 6854 (which is the primary) is 12".
The projected linear separation is small at 6 kpc,
based on a redshift of v_o = 5578 km/s and a
redshift distance of 112 Mpc (H = 50). The
redshift of the companion is within 200 km/s of
that of the primary (Sandage 1978).
No bar seen on this plate. Companion or star superposed 0.2 north-preceding.
Overexposed center with short bar(?), much extended corona. Small companion
=ESO 185- G 61

There is a faint star 0.15 arcmin north-preceding nucleus.
Very small, bright anonymous galaxy (1.4 arcmin x 0.9 arcmin) at 1.9 arcmin
