Object name: NGC5894
NGC 5894 is a barred? spiral in Draco below the bowl of the Little Dipper about 120 million light-years distant. That makes it about 120,000 light-years across, a rather large spiral. I put a question mark after barred because some papers listed it that way and I can't see the bar. Though it is so edge-on I assume they are using radio observations of hydrogen flow to make this designation. Still, if some pros are questioning it, I put it in. NED officially classifies it as SBdm? I don't know if their question mark is for the barred status or something else. The NGC Project classifies it as SB?c-Irr showing they do question the barred status. They call it a somewhat irregular spiral while the NGC project says it is a Magellanic irregular, a more specific type. Seligman says simply SBm not questioning anything but not getting into if it is a c or d type spiral. When dealing with galaxies this edge on this difference of opinion isn't unusual. So much for astronomy as an exact science.
