Re:NGC 1272
NGC 1267, NGC 1268, NGC 1270, NGC 1272, NGC 1273, NGC 1277, NGC 1278,
and NGC 1282. - Six of these galaxies detected on the MUV frame centered
on NGC 1275 are members of the Perseus cluster. Most are early types, the
latest being NGC 1268 (Sb). The brightest of these in the MUV is NGC 1267
(type E+), which shows a very compact source (see Fig. 23a). This could be
a mild starburst or an active nucleus, although no radio emission has been
reported. Although these objects are faint, we believe their (MUV-R)
colors are accurate to 0.1-0.2 mag. After correction for foreground
extinction, these have the reddest (MUV-R) colors (see Table 6) of any
objects in our sample. A sufficiently large error (>~0.5 mag) in the
estimate of foreground A_V_ seems unlikely. Instead, these may be
metal-rich systems that lack the large extreme horizontal branch component
which boosts the MUV flux in ellipticals like NGC 1399.

Re:NGC 1272
NGC 1272: Extremely round galaxy. This roundness as well as three stars
(two very symmetrical ones at 20 arcsec and another at 15 arcsec)
probably make the isophotal twist at a > 15 meaningless. RC2
classification is LAS^-^.
