De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

This highly inclined galaxy has two well-defined rings. The inner ring is very bright and shows a near-side dust lane. The inside of the ring appears dusty as in NGC 7702 , and also as in NGC 7702 and NGC 4553 , there is a small central bar-like feature. Thus, IC 5169 is the same kind of object as these other two. The outer ring is well-defined, but unlike the other galaxies, this ring shows a slightly dimpled shape characteristic of OLR subclass R1.
