Object name: NGC6792
NGC 6792 is a very large, possibly "red and dead" spiral in northeastern Lyra. It is a bit over 200,000 light-years distant by redshift and while Tully-Fisher estimates put it slightly further the agreement is quite good. I measure its size at about 150,000 light-years. NED and the NGC project classifies it as SBb while Seligman says SBb?. I'm not sure why the question mark. It has a very odd rotation curve that is centered on a point well south of the core. I didn't find any ideas why this was the case. The faint spiral arms are rather distorted, possibly due to this odd rotation curve. Could this be why it appears to be a "red and dead" galaxy? Is this appearance only due to it being heavily reddened by our galaxy's dust? I doubt it, it has places on its outskirts appear slightly blue.
