De Vaucouleurs Atlas Description:

NGC 7412 shows ``massive " spiral arms and is defined by four major arms in a very open pattern. The arms break from a weak bar with curved dust lanes. The four-armed pattern is very distinctive but somewhat asymmetric. There is no trace of even an inner pseudoring , and thus NGC 7412 is a very good (s)-variety spiral.
