Object name: FGC0851
FGC 0851/PGC 025886 is a huge flat galaxy seen nearly edge-on showing its lack of a central bulge. It would be a great sight if we could see it face on. It is a bit over 160,000 light-years across making it a huge spiral. NED classifies it as SAB(rs)b: while others say they see no sign of a bar. Why the discrepancy? Might help if we saw it more face on I suppose. It has a strange non-symmetrical dust lane structure with the southern lane nearly straight while the inner one has a curve that doesn't seem to be quite right either. Lower right side dust lanes are just a jumble of dust.
