Re:IC 5052
IC 5052 is a late-type spiral with classifications Scd or Sd. Radio
emission detected by {lambda}35 cm observations revealed an unusually
double peaked radio emission complex associated with the disk, which
was not coming from the nucleus (Harnett & Reynolds 1991).
Our H{alpha} image reveals a bright layer of extraplanar DIG superposed
by individual filaments and shells (see Fig. 13). There is a depression
in the H{alpha} distribution noticed in the southern part of the
galaxy, due to significant dust absorption, which almost separates the
galaxy in two parts. An asymmetrical distribution is also visible in
the R-band image. The southern edge is dominated by H{alpha} emission,
whereas the broadband image shows almost no intensity. Several arcs and
shells make this galaxy a good target for further high resolution
Pa{alpha} observations with NICMOS onboard HST (Boker et al. 1999)
showed excess emission of an isolated region in the disk-halo
interface, slightly offset from the disk, which is possibly associated
with one of the brighter emission regions in the southern part of our
H{alpha} image. The diagnostic ratios are both moderate, so it is quite
remarkable that extended DIG emission is detected in that abundance in
IC 5052.

Re:IC 5052
IC 5052.---Sd: System edge-on. No evidence of a bulge, or of spiral
structure. Despite the edge-on orientation, there is no sign of any
prominent dust lane. The system is oriented NW-SE; the NW side has a
much higher surface brightness than the SE side. There are obvious
knots throughout the disk. Again, these are more prevalent on the NW

Re:ESO 074- G 015
ESO 074-G15 is a very late-type galaxy with irregular dust patches
scattered across its disc. It does not display a clear galactic centre,
and its disc shows significant, irregular thickening on one side of the
galactic centre. Its large projected size lends it very well for a
detailed study of its colour behaviour (Fig. 2a; T = 7.0).

The small redshift v_o = 140 km/s listed in
the RSA is evidently incorrect because one of the
redshifts used in calculating that mean is grossly
wrong. An accurate observed 21-cm redshift of
v_sun_ = 595 km/s listed by Huchtmeier and
Richter (1989) leads to v_o = 428 km/s. This
larger redshift is consistent with the level of
resolution into stars and HII regions, while the
smaller velocity is not.
The largest of the several HII regions
resolve at the 2" level. The brightest stars begin
to resolve at about B = 21.

Plate 907
Very patchy. Similar to NGC 4631.

6. 1979AJ.....84..472S
Re:IC 5052
No central bulge.
The galaxy is large (D > 5 arcmin).
Should resolve, but internal absorption will be a problem
because it is so nearly edge on.
Suggestion of two large HII regions with D > 3 arcsec
but need better plate.

7. 1964RC1...C...0000d
Re:IC 5052
No nucleus. Bright, asymmetric, extremely thin.
