Re:NGC 4073
NGC 4073. - This galaxy was observed by D. Geisler and coworkers, and
it is not associated with a cluster. Its globular cluster population is
extensive. Worminess in some of the images contaminates the SBF
measurement, and the P_g_ correction is large. Another difficulty with the
analysis of this galaxy was accurately subtracting the smooth galaxy
profile. Because the dither pattern used in this case was chosen to
maximize the number of globular clusters detected, there is a hole in the
image near the galaxy center that made galaxy subtraction somewhat
difficult.

NGC 4073 is in a rich field of early-type galaxies west of the
ridge line of the Local Supergalactic plane (supergalactic latitude
-12 deg). However, NGC 4073 is in the background, as judged from its
redshift of v_o = 5670 km/s, which is higher than the redshift v_o =
1000 km/s expected for galaxies in the Local Supercluster. The large
redshift and the bright apparent magnitude of B_T_ = 12.7 make NGC
4073 among the intrinsically brightest field galaxies in the RSA at
M_T_ = -22.5.
The morphology is typical E5 of moderate compactness. The image
to the right and above the major axis on the facing print is of a
highly compact (M32-like?) cE2 galaxy of presently unknown redshift
(c. 1990).
