Re:NGC 5266
NGC 5266. NGC 5266 is an HI-rich elliptical galaxy with a dust ring
along the minor axis of the galaxy (Varnas et al. 1987; Morganti et al.
1997). From the MIR maps of Figs. 3 and A.8 we can see a disk at 15
micron (slightly warped) which is aligned with the minor axis of the
galaxy. The SED shows a clear excess of the MIR emission over the
stellar component.

This famous case, NGC 5266, is the best example of an encircling
dust lane perpendicular to the major axis of an underlying S0
galaxy. The structure of the dust ring is best seen in the insert
prints. It is well shown in silhouette against the front side of the
bulge and can be traced against the fainter regions of the main body
as it turns to disappear behind the back side of the S0(5) galaxy. The
dust lane is much more regular than the similar pattern in NGC 5128
below and on the next panel.
A detailed photometric and kinematic study of both the dust
feature and the stellar main body of NGC 5266 has been made by Varnas
et al. (1987).

Dark lane across overexposed center, pretty bright lens, very faint
corona. Several stars superposed.
