Object name: NGC0674
Designation(s): NGC0674, NGC0697,
NGC 697/674 is a spiral galaxy in northwestern Ares about 130 million light-years distant by redshift and 110 by the consensus of 17 non-redshift measurements at NED. It is considered a member of the NGC 691 galaxy group which average about the same redshift as that of this galaxy. Still, it is hard to argue with a rather nicely grouped non-redshift measurements that have a standard deviation of only 9 million light-years. So I'll split the difference and say 120 million light-years. That makes its size nearly 200,000 light-years including faint plumes my horrid night barely showed. Unfortunately, they don't show in the color image. Using the size seen in the posted image it is still very large at a bit under 160,0000 light-years across. So this is a major galaxy. While I've not yet taken NGC 691 its angular size in catalogs is smaller than NGC 697-74. NGC 697 is classified as SAB(r)c: by NED and the NGC Project and Seligman. It's unusual when those three agree though Seligman uses a question mark for a colon they two mean essentially the same, a bit of doubt in the classification as a c arm structure galaxy. Not surprising given the oblique angle we see it at. For a hint of the plume, especially on the east side see http://cseligman.com/text/atlas/ngc674wide.jpg.
