NGC 4373 Group
March 9/10, 1980
103aD + GG495
NGC 4373 is the eponymous and the
brightest member of a group of at least seven
early-type galaxies. The mean redshift from the
brightest three members is
(Sandage 1975b). The angular separation of
NGC 4373 and its close companion IC 3290
(SBa), shown here, is 2.0'. The redshifts of the
pair are close, at v_o of 3212 km/s and 3137 km/s
(Sandage 1978). At a redshift distance of 63
Mpc (H = 50) the projected linear separation is
The morphology of the outer regions of NGC
4373 is prototypical E4.
Regular elliptical. The isophotes deviate from ellipses at a low level (~
Overexposed center, hint of bar, faint corona. Optical(?) pair
with IC 3290 at 1.8.
