Description:
Very faint, a neighbor of 2991: it also has the SO classification and
appears Eliptical. I was suspicious that I had blundered in my
previous comment on this (ngc2991) and rushed to remind myself of what
an SO galaxy actually looked like, of course it is the transition
stage of the two main spiral types to Eliptical!! Time to smack the
forehead and say DOH!!
