Re:NGC 3779
NGC 3779: this galaxy, from the Leo I group, does not show any sign of
morphological disturbance (Schweizer & Seitzer 1992). There is, however, a small
nuclear dust ring (van Dokkum & Franx 1995; Lauer et al. 2005), and some ionized
gas that extends to a radius of 8 arcsec (Macchetto et al. 1996). All the
globular clusters seem to be old and show a broad dispersion in metallicity
(Pierce et al. 2006). The dynamics of this galaxy is explained assuming a merger
where the gas dissipation has not been important (Gebhardt et al. 2000).
