103aO + GG385
The spiral pattern in NGC 7162 is multi-armed
in thick fragments that begin at the center.
NGC 7162 forms a physical pair with NGC 7166
(S0; panel 34) at an angular separation of
11'. The redshifts are v_o(7162) = 2169 km/s
and v_o(7166) = 2376 km/s. At the mean redshift
distance of 45 Mpc (H = 50) the projected
linear separation is 145 kpc.
Small bright nucleus, broken (r): 1.0 x 0.4, faint patchy arms.
Overexposed center, probable (r'): 0.7 x 0.3, patchy arms with many faint knots.
