A magnitude 14.0 spiral galaxy (type SB(s)c pec?) in Leo (RA 09 39 18.0, Dec +32 18 39)
For anything else see NGC 2944

PGC 27534 (with

PGC 27534 = A magnitude 14.8 spiral galaxy (type SB? pec?) in Leo (RA 09 39 16.8, Dec +32 18 38)
For anything else see NGC 2944

PGC 27546 (with
PGC 27547 = Arp 129)
A magnitude 14(?) lenticular galaxy (type SB0?) in Leo (RA 09 39 26.4, Dec +32 21 56)
Physical Information: (Note: NED and LEDA agree that the eastern member of the pair is PGC 27546, and the western member is PGC 27547; but LEDA has the galaxy types reversed, and NED lists each galaxy as lenticular in one place and spiral in another place. So there has undoubtedly been considerable confusion about the correct identification of the galaxies, and whether their physical data are correctly given in the two catalogs is questionable. As a result, the brightness, apparent size and galaxy types given here are based directly on the images below; but which galaxy has a given recessional velocity is anybody's guess.) PGC 27546 is generally considered a member of an interacting pair (with PGC 27547), in which case their individual recessional velocities of 6860 and 6585 km/sec should be averaged to determine their distance (and since there is a very good chance that those velocities have been misattributed, it might be best to use their average anyway). Based on their average recessional velocity of 6820 km/sec, PGC 27546 and PGC 27547 are about 315 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.5 by 0.45 arcmin, PGC 27546 is about 45 thousand light years across. It is used by the Arp Atlas as an example of an elliptical galaxy (PGC 27546) close to and perturbing a spiral galaxy (PGC 27547).

A magnitude 15.2 spiral galaxy (type SAB(rs)bc? pec) in Leo (RA 09 39 24.5, Dec +32 21 46)
Physical Information: (Note: NED and LEDA agree that the eastern member of the pair is PGC 27546, and the western member is PGC 27547; but LEDA has the galaxy types reversed, and NED lists each galaxy as lenticular in one place and spiral in another place.

PGC 27547 is generally considered a member of an interacting pair (with PGC 27546, which see for images), in which case their individual recessional velocities of 6860 and 6585 km/sec should be averaged to determine their distance (and since there is a very good chance that those velocities have been misattributed, it might be best to use their average anyway). Based on their average recessional velocity of 6820 km/sec, PGC 27546 and PGC 27547 are about 315 million light years away. Given that and its apparent size of 0.7 by 0.55 arcmin, PGC 27547 is about 65 thousand light years across.
