103aO + GG385
The small angular size of NGC 5768
(D_25_ = 2') and the faint apparent magnitude of
B_T_ = 12.9, combined with the fairly small redshift of
v_o = 1960 km/s gives the faint absolute
magnitude M_B_T_ = -20.4.
The HII regions and individual brightest
stars are unresolved.
SA(rs)c: (de Vaucouleurs)
Small, bright nucleus. Pseudo (r): 0.5 arcmin x 0.3? arcmin. Several, knotty,
branching arms. Poorly resolved.
Heidelberg Veroff. Vol. 9, 1926 and HA 88,2 (m_c) dimensions are for the
bright part only.
