|Description: ||False-color image of LEDA 074886, taken with Suprime-Cam at the Subaru Telescope. The central contrast has been adjusted to reveal the inner disk/bar-like component. For reference, the major-axis of the boxy outer red annulus spans 3.2–3.8 kpc, while the outer-edge of the outer-most blue annulus has a major-axis of 5.2 kpc.|
