De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

All of the features of this galaxy are very subtle but are best shown in this 2.2 micron Ks-band image. The bar is an ansae type, and there is very weak structure near it, possibly in the form of an s-shaped spiral. The rim of the disk is also weakly enhanced and somewhat ring-like.
