NGC 6876 is the brightest E galaxy in a
small group in Pavo whose mean redshift is
= 3785 km/s (Sandage 1975b). The companion
is the normal E5 galaxy NGC 6877, off the left
border of the print here. The angular separation
of 82" corresponds to a projected linear separation
of 30 kpc. The redshift difference between
the pair is about 170 km/s (Sandage 1978).
There is no evidence of interaction between NGC
6876 and 6877.
