Re:NGC 3623
NGC 3623 is a barred Sa galaxy and a member of the Leo Triplet. While there are
strong indications that the two other members of the triplet (NGC 3627 and 3628)
are interacting, NGC 3623 appears undisturbed (Chromey et al. 1998). This galaxy
contains a prominent dust lane at ?15 arcsec east of the nucleus. The stellar
velocity map is twisted with respect to the reconstructed intensity image. The
h_3_ parameter correlates, in the outer parts, with the stellar velocity field,
giving kinematic confirmation of the presence of a large-scale bar (Bureau &
Athanassoula 2005). A central disc is also present in the inner parts of the
galaxy (see also Afanasiev & Silchenko 2005). Kinematic signatures of this disc
can be seen in the stellar velocity map, in the drop of velocity dispersion and
in the anticorrelation of the h_3_ parameter in the inner parts. The ionized gas
shows a patchy morphology with a highly twisted zero-velocity curve and some
indication of the presence of spiral arms. An H{alpha} image of the galaxy is
shown in Hameed & Devereux (2005).

Re:NGC 3623
NGC 3623 (M65) is an Sa spiral galaxy at a distance of 12.3 Mpc with a
pronounced dust arm in its silhouette against the disk. ULX1 is positioned on
the dust arm.

This negative print of NGC 3623 is from the
same plate used in the Hubble Atlas. As described
there, the galaxy is a type example of the late part
of the Sa section. The bulge is small. The spiral
pattern is well defined by a combination of dust
arms and by the two main bright arms, resembling
the form displayed by the galaxies on panels
66 and 69.
However, the arms in NGC 3623 are
defined best by the dust pattern in its silhouette
against the disk. The inclination to the line of
sight is nearly optimum to show this dust
silhouette. Hubble (1943) used NGC 3623 to
illustrate the dust asymmetry as a diagnostic to
determine which is the near side of a galaxy and
thereby to determine the direction of opening of
the spiral pattern.
The dust pattern on the near side can be
traced across the disk and into the center as a
series of spiral fragments, seen in this print on
the upper left side of the major axis.

Re:NGC 3623
NGC 3623, NGC 3627 and NGC 3628 make up the Leo Triplet. NGC 3623 is an
Sa galaxy that has defied several detection attempts, placing it below
the FIR-CO relationship. NGC 3627 is a LINER (SM) where we detect CO(2-1)
out to 2' (5.4 kpc) to the North and South (as far out as observed) and
distinguish the arm/interarm regions. NGC 3628 has a higher dust
temperature and stronger CO emission. NGC 3628 is discussed further in
Boissey et al. (1987) and Reuter et al. (1991) and NGC 3627 in our Paper
IV on radial distributions and rotation curves of the better observed
sample galaxies.

NGC 3623 is the latest Sa shown in the atlas. In an older
notation it would have been called Sab. Note the prominent
dust lane silohouetted against the bright background.
There is no resolution of the arms into knots, but the
photographic image of the lens and arms is not as smooth
as for NGC 4866 or NGC 0718. A negative reproduction of NGC 3623
is given by Hubble in Ap. J., 97, 112, 1943.
