1987ApJ...315...46F X-ray observations of spiral galaxies. II - Images and spectral parameters of 13 galaxies G. Fabbiano and G. Trinchieri Abstract. The results of a spatial and spectral analysis of a sample of spiral galaxies observed in X-rays with the Einstein satellite indicate that the X-ray emission is generally extended and complex. In some cases, discrete, very bright X-ray sources are detected, some of these coincident with the nuclear regions. The spectral fit of the IPC data to a thermal bremsstrahlung spectrum with a low-energy absorption cutoff shows that the average spectrum could be rather hard with kT greater than 2 keV, and with low-energy cutoff consistent with line-of-sight absorption. Results on NGC 4631, NGC 6946, and the nuclei of IC 342 and NGC 1313 are discussed and compared with previous observations in different energy ranges.
