Re:NGC 4116
NGC 4116 (Fig. 16.47).-Our GALEX imaging of this SB(rs)dm galaxy paired with NGC
4123 demonstrate that the UV disk is highly structured into spiral segments but
lacks symmetry. This disturbed structure is also visible in SDSS images, but the
GALEX sensitivity reveals more morphological features in the outer disk. For
example, our NUV image shows a tightly wrapped spiral arm encircling the south
end of the major axis. As is the case for many of our Type 2 XUV-disks, the
2MASS-K_S_ data reveal essentially just the innermost portion of the galaxy
(nucleus and bar). Both NGC 4116 and NGC 4123 are part of a quartet dominated by
NGC 4179, but it is not certain that NGC 4116 is interacting with any galaxy
(even NGC 4123).

Pair [with NGC 4123]
SBc(r)II-III

NGC 4116 forms a physical pair with NGC 4123
(SBbc; panels 201, S8) at a separation of
14'. The respective redshifts are
v_o(4116) = 1140 km/s and v_o(4123) = 1157 km/s.
At a redshift distance of 23 Mpc (H = 50) the
projected linear separation of the pair is 94 kpc.
Many HII-region candidates exist in the bar
and in the arm pattern. The nucleus in the center
of the bar is starlike; it is unresolved at the 0.7"
level.
