 1. 1994CAG1..B...0000S Re:NGC 4783 VV 201 [with NGC 4782] 3C 278 E1(tides) H-2535-H May 4/5, 1948 103aO 30 min This pair of E galaxies within a common envelope is the strong radio source 3C 278. It is also VV 201 in the catalog of Vorontsov-Velyaminov (1977). A bridge of luminous material exists between the two nuclei. The inner envelopes of each galaxy deviate from circular symmetry; the distortion in NGC 4783 (the image to the right) is more pronounced. The large redshift difference is 656 km/s; the individual values are v_o(4782) = 3773 km/s and v_o(4783) = 4429 km/s. The angular separation of the pair is 46". Assuming a mean redshift for the system of = 4100 km/s, giving a redshift distance of 82 Mpc (H = 50), the projected linear separation is small at 18 kpc, explaining the large redshift difference as the high orbital velocity of a close pair. 2. 1976RC2...C...0000d Re:NGC 4783 = Holm 485b In 3C 278 = VV 201 Interacting pair with NGC 4782 at 0.7 arcmin, connected. 3. 1968MCG4..C...0000V Re:MCG -02-33-051 Paired with MCG -02-33-050 Interacting pair of radiogalaxies, with their main bodies in contact {rho} = 0.65 arcmin. There is a companion dE [18 mag] in contact with one of them 0.4 arcmin to the north. Photo: ST, 30, 219 VV 201 Ap.J., 140, 1462. Photometry: Ap.J., 140, 1462 Mass: Greenstein, Ap.J., 133, 335. This is a binary (= Holm 485) Spectrum of arc show no emission (P.A.S.P., 69, 386). Type: vdB - E0(t?) deV - E0p Greenstein - S0 Morg - kD1 Redshift = +4,530 km/sec (Greenstein) + 4,465 km/sec (Page) 4. 1964RC1...C...0000d Re:NGC 4783 = Holm 485b Interacting pair with NGC 4782 at 0.7 arcmin; connected. NGC 4783 is the north-following galaxy in the pair. Identifications by Page, 1952 are in error (interchange NGC numbers). HA 88,4 dimensions are for the both galaxies together. Note also correction to HA 88,2 Dec. Photograph: P.N.A.S., 26, 35, 1940. Ap. J., 116, 64, 1952. Spectrum: Ap. J., 116, 64, 1952. Ap. J., 133, 335, 1961. Ap. J., 135, 681, 1962.
