Re:Abell 2107
Fujita et al. (2006) presented an analysis of Chandra observation of this
cluster. Since the cD galaxy has a large peculiar velocity and the ICM in the
central region has an irregular structure, these authors concluded that this
cluster is undergoing a merger.
From our results, A2107 contains the smallest substructure and has almost
symmetric X-ray contours providing no evidence of a recent merger.

Re:ABELL 2107
This is a remarkably regular cluster. Oegerle & Hill (1992) found
evidence of substructures by using the test of D88. The peculiar velocity
of the cD galaxy could suggest a situation of nonperfect dynamical
equilibrium. However, with the present data, there is good agreement
between {sigma} and T.
