De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

This highly inclined spiral has a bar that is viewed nearly end-on and as a result is highly foreshortened. Nevertheless, it is still obvious that NGC 2713 is an NGC 1433 -type of barred spiral with an inner pseudoring , an outer pseudoring , and also plume-like features off the leading sections of the inner pseudoring . In this case, the outer pseudoring is very well-defined and is mostly an R1' type, although it is complicated by the plume-like features. The inner pseudoring is a more ill-defined feature. The color index map shows not only leading dust lanes in the bar, but also a complex dust distribution on the near side due to the high inclination . This map also shows that star formation characterizes the outer pseudoring and parts of the inner pseudoring . No star formation is seen in the center.
