The host galaxy (de Koff et al. 1996, 2000, McLure et al. 1999) is a giant elliptical showing either a dust lane or a double nucleus.

In most respects this is an archetypical classical double DRAGN. The hotspots are faint but rather compact, especially the brightest, recessed hotspot in the south lobe. At higher resolution it can be seen that this terminates a a faint jet: see the higher-resolution 5 GHz image on the "Other Images" page. Hardcastle et al. (1997) have also published high-resolution images, at 8.4 GHz.
