Pictor A is a radio-loud Seyfert 1 galaxy initially detected in X-ray by the
Einstein observatory (Elvis et al. 1992). The best fit to ASCA and BAT data is
an absorbed power-law model with a photon index of 1.8^+0.02^_-0.02_ and
intrinsic absorption of 1.4^+0.01^_-0.05_ x 10^21^ atoms cm^-2^ slightly in
excess of the Galactic one (4 x 10^20^ atoms cm^-2^).
q0518-4549, z = 0.0351.-PKS, Pictor A. This is a well-studied
low-redshift radio galaxy. G270, G190, G130.
Pictor A. This is an FRII broad-line radio galaxy with a strong double-lobed
radio source oriented along the east-west direction (Christiansen et al. 1977).
Halpern & Eracleous (1994) detected double-peaked Balmer lines, not present in
previous spectra. The Ws and continuum ratios (Fig. 32) show a strong dilution
by the FC at the nucleus. Their values correspond to an S4 template in the
outer regions. except for the G band, where the values are similar to those of
an S1 template in the outer regions. The remarks about the uncertain
continuum and W measurements in the nucleus of MCG-02-33-034 also apply to
Complex source, Pictor A, an edge-brightened double (the
west hotspot prominent) with a core component. Models fitted by
Ekers (1969) and SSM. Mapped by Gardner &
Whiteoak (1971), SM, Schwartz et al. (1974), Slee (1977) and Christiansen
et al. (1977).
Galaxy 16.5 m at 05 18 23.59 -45 49 42.5,
40 arcsec from the centroid and 15 arcsec west from the central peak. This
is the same as the faint 19 m ID of Bolton et al. (1964) but our
brighter magnitude is supported by V = 15.77 of Westerlund & Wall (1969).
