Re:VCC 1499
VCC 1499.This galaxy should be classified as a dIrr/dE. There are several bright
clusters and blue associations close to the center, although there does not
appear to be a proper nucleus, and there is no convincing evidence of dust. The
center of the isophotes drifts to the east as the radius is increased.

Re:VCC 1499
VCC 1499. While this galaxy appears to be an elliptical on ground based
Digitized Sky Survey images, our ACS images reveal it to contain numerous young
blue star clusters at the center. Also, the color of the galaxy is one of the
bluest in the sample, suggesting that it may be a dI/dE transition object. In
the same field, only 1.4' away, is a true dE, VCC 1491, hence the clusters
measured in this field are a combination of the systems of these two galaxies.
