The multiple spiral pattern in NGC 1515 is
defined by fragments of dust lanes similar to the
pattern in NGC 3675 and NGC 5005 on this
panel. There is a small nucleus. A weak X-shaped
bulge exists out of the plane over the central
one-tenth of the image.
Very little current star formation exists.
Only about a dozen HII regions appear over the
face on the well-exposed existing plates.
Overexposed center, similar to NGC 7331. NGC 1515A 2.0 south-preceding.
Non-interacting pair with NGC 1515A at 2.0 arcmin
Several small galaxies in the field.
Atlas Gal. Australis, 1968.
Very bright center.
2 main arms, dark lanes on one side.
Non-interacting pair with NGC 1515A at 2.0 arcmin.
Several small galaxies in field.
