Re:VCC 0608
3.5.4. VCC608 VCC 608 (NGC 4323), classified as a dE4, N in the VCC, is
the second brightest Virgo dwarf elliptical galaxy detected in neutral
hydrogen, with MB = -16.6. It was first detected in H I by Huchtmeier &
Richter (1986). VCC 608 also has a fairly red color, with (B-V) = 0.87
+- 0.06 (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991), consistent with an old stellar
population (see the argument in {section}3.5.2). Ryden et al. (1999)
determined that this galaxy has a mean ellipticity of 0.39 with
isophotal fits giving values consistent with a disky structure.
Gavazzi et al. (2001) fitted surface photometry in the near-IR H band
(1.6 pm), finding a good exponential fit and a low concentration of
light, further confirmation that this is morphologically similar to a
dwarf galaxy. VCC 608 also has an M_dyn_/L_B_ ratio of ~2.5, based on
its H I line width. It also contains a high H I gas content of ~10^9^
and has one of the highest H I gas mass fractions in our sample (Table
