NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2015MNRAS.454.3222B Galaxy interactions in the Hickson Compact Group 88 Brosch, Noah Abstract. I present observations of the Hickson Compact Group 88 (HCG88) obtained during the commissioning of a new 28-inch telescope at the Wise Observatory. This galaxy group was advertized to be non-interacting, or to be in a very early interaction stage, but this is not the case. The observations reported here were done using a 'luminance' filter, essentially a very broad R filter, reaching a low surface brightness level of ~26 mag arcsec^-2^. Additional observations were obtained in a narrow spectral band approximately centred on the rest-frame H {alpha} line from the group. Contrary to previous studies, my observations show that at least two of the major galaxies have had significant interactions in the past, although probably not between themselves. I report the discovery of a faint extended tail emerging from the brightest of the group galaxies, severe isophote twisting and possible outer shells around another galaxy, and map the H II regions in all the galaxies. Key words: galaxies: groups: individual: HCG 88, galaxies: interactions, galaxies: spiral
