Only two exposures can be used of the four, due to telescope pointing errors. The host galaxy is a smooth elliptical, with 2 companions visible on the WFPC2 image [Martel et al.1999]. The point source on the edge of the NICMOS chip to the WSW is in line with the radio axis, and is a candidate hotspot - also clearly visible on the WFPC2 images.
