3.6. NGC 7097
The analysis of the radial intensity profiles yields for the gaseous disk an
inclination of i=62^deg^ with the line of nodes at PA=3^deg^. The symmetry of
the velocity curves about the center (only PA=110^deg^ shows some asymmetry)
makes this galaxy a good candidate for a complete dynamical study.
Unfortunately only 5 different spectra are available for this galaxy. The
spectra near the major axis (PA=0^deg^) extends up to 8" hardly reaching the
turn-over of the velocity curve. Caldwell et al. (1986) interpreted their gas
kinematical data as a centrally concentrated gaseous disk inclined 60^deg^ to
the plane of the sky in agreement with the present data. The gas rotation
curve is found to have a steep central gradient with a pronounced
discontinuity in the central part which may be related to the counter-rotating

NGC 7097 is a prototypical E4.
NGC 7097: There is an elongated emission region misaligned by ~30^deg^
with the stellar figure. Some dust is seen along the major axis of the
gas disk and in the central regions. Caldwell et al. (1986) have made a
detailed dynamical study of NGC 7097 and find that the gas and stars are
