NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1990MNRAS.245p..12C Kinematics of the dwarf spheroidal galaxy NGC 205 D. Carter Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes, Royal Greenwich Observatory, Apartado 321, Santa Cruz de La Palma, Tenerife, Spain E. M. Sadler Anglo-Australian Observatory, P.O. Box 296, Epping, NSW 2121, Australia Accepted 1990 April 20. Received 1990 April 11 SUMMARY We present new kinematic data and surface photometry for the dwarf spheroidal galaxy NGC 205. In common with giant elliptical galaxies, this dwarf spheroidal appears to be flattened by velocity dispersion anisotropy rather than by rotation. The velocity dispersion is of order 15 km s^-1^ in the nuclear region, which is the site of recent star formation, and increases to 50 km s^-1^ in the outer regions. Treating the nuclear component separately from the bulk of the galaxy, we derive mass-to-light ratios in red light of 2.35 in the centre, and 9.4 for the bulk of the galaxy.
