Notes for object NGC 2844

5 note(s) found in NED.

1. 2006MNRAS.369..529F
Re:NGC 2844
NGC 2844 is the brightest member of a group of galaxies including also NGC 2852
and 2853 (Giuricin et al. 2000). The stellar kinematics display regular velocity
and velocity dispersion fields. The H{beta} and [O III] flux maps reveal a
ring-like structure, consistent with a dust ring seen in the unsharp masking.
The [O III]/H{beta} ratio and the gas velocity dispersion are low along the
ring, which is indicative of ongoing star formation. The galaxy is classified as
an H II galaxy in NED. The H{beta} and [O III] velocity fields are both regular
and similar to the stellar velocity map.

Dust arms exist throughout the disk of NGC
2844. The central bulge is very small, but the
tightness of the arms, not shown well in this print,
belie a later type than Sa.
