Re:KIG 1004
CIG 1004: The galaxy was classified as SB(s)c (NED). The optical images show a
bar and a multiarmed spiral pattern. The composed JHK image shows only a
two-armed spiral pattern and a prominent large-scale bar. The photometric I- and
JHK-band ({epsilon} and P.A.) profiles also show evidence of a large bar. The (B
- V) color corresponds to SbcSc types. We classify this galaxy as SB(s)c.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479 (Figs. 7.68, 9.68, 20.68): The nucleus is small and resolved, and there
are some scattered star clusters throughout the field of view. There is a
remarkable chain of bright clusters 5" to the south of the nucleus that has a
north-south alignment.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479. This SB(s)c galaxy has been studied in H I by Laine & Gottesman
(1998). The H I distribution shows considerable asymmetries and distortions in
the outer disc. The H I and H{alpha} kinematics suggest that, while the global
velocity field is fairly regular, a severe perturbation is present in the
western spiral arm. There is also a strong velocity gradient along the bar
confirmed in the PV diagram. The H{alpha} monochromatic image shows strong H II
regions at one end of the bar.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479 (Fig. 8h, available in the online version). This is a
late-type galaxy having a bar and two strong spiral arms starting from
the two ends of the bar. In this case, two spiral arms form a global
pattern in the disc. The arms are also forming a ring at the radius of
the bar major axis. The A_2_ density maximum is probably a combination
of both bar and spiral arms. 6.2 Non-barred SAB-type galaxies The two
galaxies NGC 1371 and 5054 are chosen to illustrate typical SAB-type
galaxies as defined by EFP in the near-IR. Some of the SAB-type bars in
the JR might also be spiral arms, which look like a bar in projection.
Such an example is NGC 4504, which is classified as non-barred in
RC3.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479: as in the previous case, this SBc has a very strong bar that
dominates the surface profile. Therefore, it was not possible to perform
an acceptable parameter decomposition.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479.---(R)SBbc: Strong, thin bar, at a P.A. slightly skewed from
the bulge major axis P.A. Bar is close to N--S. Bulge is elliptical.
Arms come from ends of the bar but are not perpendicular to the bar.
South arm commences with a sharp west kink at the end of the bar.
Second kink to the north, and then a smooth curve until the arm fades
after roughly 180deg. North arm emerges smoothly from bar and curves
smoothly back to the south. Also fades after ~180deg. Arms appear to
form an off-center pseudoring. South arm is more open than the north
arm (thus, the bulge is to the east of the center of the pseudoring).

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479 (Fig. 14) has strong polarized radio emission, mainly due to
the nuclear "jet'' which was discovered by Laine & Gottesman (1998). The
jet is not resolved in the maps presented here (Figs. 14 and 25). Total
emission is enhanced in the western spiral arm. The polarized emission
and Faraday rotation in this galaxy will be discussed in detail elsewhere.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479: this is a difficult galaxy since, on top of a bar,
there is a major m=1 asymmetry, clearly seen in the deprojected
image for both catalogs. This can bias our methods, thus we
prefer to adopt the kinematical value from
Laine & Gottesman (1998), which is in good agreement with the
results given by our second method.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479 (S1.9). - Condon, Frayer, & Broderick (1991) and Hummel et al.
(1987) have previously detected a slightly resolved ~6 mJy core at 20 cm
based on {DELTA}{theta} = 1.5" maps. We find the core to be unresolved at
our resolution, and our full-resolution 20 cm and tapered 6 and 20 cm maps
show an additional curved extension to the north, and perhaps a weaker,
but shorter, component to the south. The total extent of the linear
feature is 36", or 5.7 kpc. We find evidence for weak
(S_pol,6_^P^ ~ S_pol,20_^P^ ~ 0.1-0.2 mJy beam^-1^) linearly polarized
emission associated with the extended emission (Fig. 16l).

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479.--NGC 7479 does not meet the full LINER classification of Heckman
(1980) in the small aperture of Ho et al. (1993) since [O I]/[O III] is below
1/3, but it has [O I]/[O III] of 2/3 in Keel's larger 6" aperture. It is also
often classified as a Seyfert 2 in the literature. NGC 7479 is the only galaxy
in this sample to be detected in H_2_ but not in [Fe II]. It also has a strong
Pa{beta} emission line detected. The small features near the wavelength of
Br{gamma} are probably residual fringes from the calibration G-star spectrum
and are not believed to be line detections. Filippenko & Sargent (1985) found
no broad H{alpha}, although many of the lines showed a complex velocity field,
which suggests a fuel supply of molecular gas. Since the [O I] may be more
extended than the [O III] emission, the central source may have Seyfert-like
line ratios.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479.The velocity structure of NGC 7479 (Fig. 14h) is reminiscent of that
of NGC 3245 (Fig. 10b), except that in this case the narrow lines have a
prominent blue asymmetry. Note that H{alpha} and [N II] have slightly different
profiles, reflecting differences in the [N II]/H{alpha} ratio between the two
main velocity components of the line. Extremely faint wings, amounting to only
~8% of the flux of the H{alpha}+[N II] blend, can be seen with FWZI~3700
km s^-1^.

Re:NGC 7479
The nucleus could be extended in the direction of the bar. Eighty-six
H II regions are detected mainly along the two spectacular looking spiral
arms. Quillen et al. (1995) make a thorough study of the gas inflow along
the bar from direct imaging in the bands BVRJHK, H{alpha}, and CO.

Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479. This is another spectacular case of SF along the dust lanes of a bar.
There is also SF activity in the galaxy centre and maybe some enhancement at
the end of the bar. A short "chain" of HII regions is observed in the southern
part of the bar, quite similar to the distribution observed in NGC 3504. There
is a strong morphological asymmetry between the main spiral arms of the galaxy
(one is very sharp. the other rather flocculent). The large-scale HI
distribution appears normal except for an S-shaped radio continuum feature
along the bar (Laine & Gottesman 1996). There, molecular gas is abundant and
exhibits peculiar kinematics (Laine & Gottesman 1996). These features could be
explained by a recent merging although no companion is seen (Laine 1996). There
seems to be no ILRs (Duval & Monnet 1985; Sempere et al. 1995; Laine 1996).

16. 1996A&AS..118..461F
Re:NGC 7479
NGC 7479. It is not possible to detect reliably any structure apart from the
main bar. This galaxy is already too inclined (see Sect. 4.2) and the
equatorial dust obscures the region where the secondary bar detection could be
possible. A careful inspection of the J - K colour map indicates that the whole
galaxy is crossed by a dust lane. However, the spatial distribution seems not
to be symmetric and the central part shows a clear isophote twists.

Re:NGC 7479
NGc 7479 is a SBc non-interacting galaxy which seems to maintain a leading
density wave that triggers star formation by developing a shock front (Beckman
& Cepa 1990). Schoniger & Sofue (1994) present CO and H I observations.

The arms in NGC 7479 are less regular
than in NGC 1365. They are branched into
secondary low-surface-brightness fragments on
the inside of the two main grand design principal
arms that spring from the ends of the bar.
The two characteristic nearly straight dust
lanes in the bar continue into the two
high-surface-brightness parts of the principal arms.
The lane in what is taken to be the near side (from
the asymmetry of the luminosity pattern by the usual
argument; Hubble 1943) is well silhouetted and
is in the middle of that arm. The largest HII
region in the opposite arm resolves at the angular
diameter (core plus halo) of 2", which is large
(510 psc; compare Sandage and Tammann
1974a) at the distance corresponding to the
observed redshift of v_o = 2630 km/s.
