Re:NGC 3600
NGC 3600 This edge-on spiral galaxy has been included in the catalog of
Markarian galaxies as Mrk 1443 (Mazarella & Balzano 1986). The
broadband R image shows a prominent bulge and indicates a slight warp
which was also noticed by (Sanchez-Saavedra et al. 1990). In our
H{alpha} image it becomes even more obvious that the disk is warped.
There is some extraplanar DIG detected, basically around the central
regions, where extended emission seems to be ejected from the nuclear
region. There is, besides the nucleus, one bright emission region,
presumably consisting of several smaller components, and several
fainter knots visible in the disk. Although the L_FIR_/D^2^_25_ is
quite moderate (1.4), NGC 3600 has a relatively high S_60_/S_100_
ratio of ~0.44. Spectroscopy of the nuclear region reveals strong
emission from the Balmer lines (H{alpha}, H{beta}), as well as from
several forbidden low ionization lines, such as [N II], and [S II]
(Ho et al. 1995). We show a detailed view of NGC 3600 in Fig. 4.
