1. 1997ApJ...481..710C
Re:NGC 1427
A visual inspection of the images shows a position angle twist
inside ~0.2" and very round isophotes inside this radius (as indicated by
the decrease in the ellipticity profile inside ~0.3"). Although dust is
not obvious in any of the (residual and original) images, the V - I color
map shows two lanes, running parallel to the minor axis and symmetric
with respect to the center. Their orientation is perpendicular to a red
elongated structure (inside ~1", oriented along the major axis). The
color map shows also some evidence for a redder color of the central
structure compared to surrounding regions. The fit to the dust-improved I
frame enhances the isophotal twisting. The C4 peaks around 1", where it
reaches the value of ~0.01, and decreases from there on, reaching
slightly negative values outside 10". The other Fourier terms are
negligible over the range 0.3"-10". These features all together indicate
the presence of a stellar disk between 0.3" and 3" (which was
suspected -although not detected- by F95).

Re:NGC 1427
NGC 1427: This is the least luminous galaxy in our sample. Kinematics
for this galaxy are presented by Franx & Illingworth (1995). Careful
study of the PC images reveal that the central structure is elongated
along the minor axis, i.e., a 90^deg^ position angle shift from the outer
isophotes. This appears to be the result of dust lying either side of the
nucleus, although we cannot rule out the possibility that the position
angle shift is real and reflects a change in the under-lying light
distribution, e.g., a nuclear bar. There are also hints of some dust
patches, located about 0.7" from the nucleus along the minor axis. We
also note that the fourth cosine is moderately disky (1.5% level) for a
radii between 1" and 2".

Re:NGC 1427
NGC 1427 (Fig. 8) is a bright member of the Fornax cluster, classified as
E3 in RC3 and as S0 by Hodge (1978). The rotation curve along the major
axis increases up to 5" and then remains constant.
