Re:IC 4662
IC 4662: This is an isolated dwarf galaxy of high surface brightness with star
formation complexes especially prominent at the northern side. We measured the
TRGB distance to be 2.44 Mpc. That makes this galaxy the nearest known
representative of BCD objects. It is amazing that this bright (B = 11.74 mag)
galaxy with a radial velocity of VLG = 145 km s^-1^ was never resolved into
stars before.

Re:IC 4662
IC 4662. A bright irregular galaxy with a prominent complex of blue
stars on the northern side. This galaxy, resolved into stars, has no
distance estimate, in spite of its very low radial velocity.

Re:IC 4662
IC 4662 -- From two giant HII regions surveyed by Rosa & D'Odorico
(1986) in this nearby galaxy, two exhibit a broad emission feature at
the blue WR bump. This is also confirmed by the study of
Heydari-Malayeri et al. (1991). Richter & Rosa (1991) detect
He II {lambda}4686 and C IV {lambda}5808 in one cluster. The WR bump was
also detected by Mas-Hesse & Kunth (1998).

IC 4662 is highly resolved into individual
stars beginning at about B = 19. Because the
galaxy is at low galactic latitude (b = -18^deg^),
contamination of the faint stellar content of
IC 4662 with foreground stars is appreciable.
The redshift of IC 4662 is v_o = 240 km/s.
The angular diameter is small at D_25_ = 2.2'.
Assuming a distance of 5 Mpc, the absolute
magnitude is M_B_ = -17.2 and the linear diameter is
3.2 kpc.

1742-64: He 2-269 has been included by Henize (1967) in a list of
planetary nebulae discovered through their H{alpha} emission on objective
prism plates; however, a direct plate obtained with the Mount Stromlo 74-
inch reflector indicated that this object was probably not a planetary
nebula. It has been rediscovered by Holmberg et al. (1974) who call it
ESO 102-G14 and classify it as an irregular galaxy or a planetary nebula.
Indeed, Pastoriza (1970) has shown that this is a dwarf emission line
galaxy also called IC 4662 at V_0_ = 406 km s^-1^; its radial velocity
has also been measured by Evans (1963), Carranza (1967), Westerlund and
Wall (1969) and West and Kohoutek (1985) (respectively 375, 377, 269 and
316+/-6 km s^-1^). UBV photometry through a 110 arcsec diaphragm has been
published by Westerlund and Wall (1969): V = 11.52, B - V = 0.40, U - B =
0.33. Our spectrum shows very strong emission lines, mainly H{alpha},
H{beta} and [OIII]{lambda}4959, 5007 at V_0_ = 360 km s^-1^.
