The galaxy NGC 4569 (M90) belongs to the Hubble class SAB(rs)ab. Its disk is inclined by 35° with respect to the sky plane. According to NED, this galaxy has a distance median value of 10.9 Mpc (which however would pose this galaxy out of the Virgo cluster and hence can hardly be correct). The bright and strongly polarized source to the south seen in the Effelsberg maps at 6.2 cm is an unrelated background source.
