NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2006MNRAS.368..534N Near-infrared study of CIZA J1324.7-5736, the second richest cluster of galaxies in the Great Attractor Nagayama, T.; Woudt, P. A.; Wakamatsu, K.; Nishiyama, S.; Nagashima, C.; Kato, D.; Nagata, T.; Nakaya, H.; Sugitani, K.; Tamura, M.; Sato, S. Abstract. We present the result of a deep near-infrared survey of the newly identified X-ray luminous cluster of galaxies CIZA J1324.7-5736 in the Great Attractor (GA) region. In a 35 x 35 arcmin^2^ region, 111 galaxy candidates with r_Ks_20_ > arcsec are identified. Comparison of the extinction-corrected K_s_-band luminosity function of CIZA J1324.7-5736 with those of nearby clusters indicates that the richness class of CIZA J1324.7-5736 is almost the same as, or richer than, the Pavo, Centaurus and Hydra clusters but poorer than the Coma, Perseus and Norma clusters. CIZA J1324.7-5736 is possibly the second richest cluster in the GA region following the Norma cluster. The position of CIZA J1324.7-5736 [in the (l, b, v) space] is close to the Centaurus-Crux cluster and the agglomeration of galaxies detected by the Parkes HI survey. CIZA J1324.7-5736, together with the Centaurus-Crux cluster and the HI galaxy agglomeration, is most likely to be one of the richest local concentrations in the GA overdensity of galaxies.
