This double radio source lies at low galactic latitude ( ), resulting in numerous stars on the image. In spite of this one can see that the undisturbed-looking elliptical host galaxy is located in a fairly dense environment, with one large companion seen on the NICMOS chip, and 3 others similar in brightness visible on the WFPC2 [Martel et al.1999] image.
