The negative print here has been made from
the same 200-inch plate used for the positive
print in the Hubble Atlas.
NGC 5615 is the object on the rim of the
main body of NGC 5614. The more-distant
RSB0 galaxy with the almost complete external
ring is NGC 5613. The ring, however, is not
complete but, like NGC 3081 (Hubble Atlas, p.
11; panels 99, 107 here) is composed of two
spiral segments that nearly overlap after each
turns by 180 deg - a common form described often
in this atlas.
The most unusual feature of the NGC
5614/5615 pair is the plume from NGC 5615.
An abnormal feature of NGC 5614 is the non-central
position of its bright center relative to the
tightly wound spiral pattern. The center of light
is displaced downward (on the print) from the
arms that are well defined by the nearly circular
dust lanes. Note the few knots that are probably
HII regions in the upper outer luminous arcs.
The central structures in NGC 5614 are
burned out on the negative print here, but the
two tightly wound, very bright arms that form a
near-ring that surrounds the central bulge are
visible on the positive print in the Hubble Atlas.
This inner pattern of nearly overlapping bright
arms, tangent to which sets of fainter outer arms
start, is the same as shown by the galaxies on
panel 66 (NGC 7702 and NGC 4274) and panel
69 (NGC 3900, NGC 4448, and NGC 6902;
note particularly the insert there).

1.0 arcmin x 0.65 arcmin.
Interacting pair with NGC 5614 at 2.0 arcmin.

Three galaxies are shown in this illustration. The large
one is NGC 5614, which is classified as Sa. The knot on
the northwest rim of NGC 5614 is called NGC 5615; it may be a
separate galaxy in collision with NGC 5614, but the interpretation
is uncertain. The SB0 on the left side of the print is
NGC 5613. Note its beautiful external ring.
The spiral pattern in NGC 5614 is composed both of
tightly wound luminous filaments and interspersed dust
lanes. The arms are almost circular. Hence, NGC 5614
is classified as early Sa.

Re:VV 077c
= NGC 5613
Perhaps VV 077a and VV 077b are interacting with VV 077c
