AM 2210-262

Edge-on spiral galaxies normally show dust absorption, but such objects have generally not been listed in the present Category, unless the absorption is unusually strong or peculiar in some way. We start first with page 14.1 by illustrating some edge-on systems with strong, asymmetrical dust bands. In AM 1326-335 the band is slanted across the bulge of the galaxy. In AM 2210-262 the dust appears bifurcated on one end of the galaxy. On page 14.2, galaxy AM 1352-263 has a dust absorption feature underneath the plane of the disk. The object AM 2159-320 has strong dust absorption outside the nucleus in a bar, suggesting that it may run radially through the galaxy. On pages 14.3 and 14.4 a number of examples of E or spherical galaxies with dust are given. Some, like AM 1339-475 and AM 0633-625, give the impression that the central galaxy is prolate, a subject discussed by Bertola (1981a, 1981b).
