IC 2038: since Karachentsev et al. (1999) do not provide a distance
for this galaxy, we can only rely on its radial velocity, which is
v_hel_ = 712 km s^-1^. However, as to its morphology and angular
size the distance can not be much larger than 10 Mpc. The galaxy
in the lower left is IC 2039, classified as S0. Ferguson & Sandage
(1990) include it, together with IC 2038, in the Dorando Group at
a distance of ~20 Mpc, despite its radial velocity of 250 km s^-1^.
In fact, the correctness of this velocity is somewhat doubtful. If
it would be confirmed, the distance of IC 2039 ought to be much
smaller and we would deal with a M32-like galaxy.
Type on this plate (Sa:pec) rejected. Overall Do x do with
IC 2039: [6.0: x 2.8].
