1999ApJ...526..592B Extreme-Ultraviolet Emission in Abell 1795, Abell 2199, and the Coma Cluster Stuart Bowyer, Thomas W. Berghofer, and Eric J. Korpela Space Sciences Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720-7450; bowyer@ssl.berkeley.edu Received 1999 April 9; accepted 1999 July 21 ABSTRACT We report new EUV data on the cluster of galaxies Abell 1795. These data were taken well away from a detector defect which could have compromised earlier results on this cluster. Our new observations confirm the validity of the original data set. However, we find our results are strongly influenced by the variation of the telescope sensitivity over the field of view and upon the details of the subtraction of the EUV emission from the X-ray plasma. We investigate these effects using our new data and archival data on Abell 1795, Abell 2199, and the Coma Cluster. When we use the appropriate correction factors, we find there is no evidence for any excess EUV emission in Abell 1795 or Abell 2199. However, we do find extended EUV emission in the Coma Cluster using our new analysis procedures, confirming that in at least this cluster some as yet unidentified process is operative.
