NGC 2782. - A detailed study of the complex nucleus of this galaxy has been made by Sakka, Oka, and Wakamatsu (1973). They suggest that NGC 2782, originally included in Seyfert's list, is an "active galaxy" rather than a normal one.
This galaxy is one of the most puzzling objects observed in the present program. The dust lanes define a relatively normal two-arm spiral but the red photographs show a most unusual structure in the nucleus. A more detailed and quantitative study of the nuclear region is in preparation.
