Notes for object PKS 1213-17

5 note(s) found in NED.


1. 2004ApJS..155...33S
Re:VSOP J1215-1731
Stickel & Kuhr (1996) were able to get an optical ID for this source,
despite the close proximity of the star gamma Corvus.

2. 2002A&A...386...97J
Re:PKS B1213-172
Radio position obscured by bright star.

3. 1999A&AS..139..297C
Re:PKS 1213-17
1213-172: A bright star near the source prevented CCD imaging. No
optical counterpart is known for this source.

4. 1996A&AS..115...11S
Re:PKS 1213-17
1213-172: Because this radio source lies close to the 2.6 mag star {gamma}
Corvus, no optical identification had previously been attempted. We succeeded
in getting an image of 1213-172 by using a nearby SAO star as positional
reference, placing the radio position extremely close to an edge of the CCD
and taking a total of nine 60 s integrations to avoid saturation. Two isophotal
plots of the field of 1213-172 are given in Fig. 1. In addition to the
optical counterpart the first also shows a number of field stars, while the
second covers only the immediate neighborhood of the identification, a
m_R_ = 21.4 mag galaxy at the radio position. It should be noted that the
morphologies of the objects close to the radio position are severely affected
by strong fringing of the CCD due to {gamma} Corvus, which could not be
completely corrected. Nevertheless, the close-up shows that the optical
counterpart of 1213-172 is likely the brightest member of a small group of
galaxies.

Re:[KWP81] 1213-17
This radio source lies close to the 2.6 mag star gamma Corvus. A direct
CCD image taken with the 3.5m telescope on Calar Alto, Spain, in June
1993 shows a m = 21.4 mag resolved galaxy at the radio position.
