Object name: NGC1022
NGC 1022 is a strange galaxy in eastern Cetus about 2 degrees below M77. Redshift puts it nearby at about 57 million light-years. A single Tully-Fisher measurement says 60 million light-years while a single estimate based on the size of its ring says 85 million light-years. Going with the 60 million light-year estimate I get a size of a bit under 50,000 light-years so it isn't a very large spiral. NED classifies it as (R')SB(s)a;HII Sbrst. The NGC Project says simply Sb while Seligman says (R)SB(rs)a pec. A lot of disagreement here. The NGC Project says no bar. The odd blue strip through the core of the galaxy in my image appears to jog around the core in a very odd fashion. But I can't say I see what looks like a traditional bar.
