Abstract

Data from the SDSS survey are used to study two galaxies with X-structures (UGC 501 and UGC 12253) visible from the edge. Both objects are spiral galaxies of late morphological types with extended stellar disks. The X-structures in the galaxies have different sizes and shapes. The possibility that the different observational parameters of the X-structures in UGC 501 and UGC 12253 are related to different characteristics of their underlying galaxies is discussed (primarily in the relative contribution of the dark halo).
