In this second paper of a series, we present a treatment procedure for data cubes obtained with the Spectrograph for Integral Field Observations in the Near Infrared of the Very Large Telescope. We verified that the treatment procedure improves significantly the quality of the images of the data cubes, allowing a more detailed analysis. The images of the Br$\gamma$ and H$_2 \lambda 21218$ emission lines from the treated data cube of the nuclear region of NGC 5643 reveal the existence of ionized… 

The nuclear region of NGC 613 – I. Multiwavelength analysis

In this paper, we report a detailed study with a variety of data from optical, near-infrared, X-ray, and radio telescopes of the nuclear region of the galaxy NGC 613 with the aim of understanding its

NGC 1566: analysis of the nuclear region from optical and near-infrared Integral Field Unit spectroscopy

We analysed the centre of NGC 1566, which hosts a well-studied active galactic nucleus (AGN), known for its variability. With the aid of techniques such as Principal Component Analysis Tomography,

The nuclear architecture of NGC 4151: on the path toward a universal outflow mechanism in light of NGC 1068

We report near-infrared integral field spectroscopic observations of the active galactic nucleus NGC 4151 with archive data from the NIFS-Gemini North Telescope. We have selected best-seeing

A treatment procedure for GMOS/IFU data cubes: application to NGC 2835

We present a set of treatment techniques for GMOS/IFU data cubes, including: correction of the differential atmospheric refraction; Butterworth spatial filtering, to remove high spatial-frequency

A two-stage outflow in NGC 1068

We present an analysis of the Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 1068 with archive data from SINFONI-VLT, in the HK bands with pixel scales of 0.1 (data set 1 - DS1) and 0.025 (DS2) arcsec. The data are revisited

The highly obscured Seyfert 2 nucleus in NGC 1448 observed with MUSE

We present the analysis of an optical data cube of the central region of NGC 1448, obtained with the Multi Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE). Chandra X-ray data indicate that the active galactic

The MAGNUM survey: Positive feedback in the nuclear region of NGC 5643 suggested by MUSE

We study the ionization and kinematics of the ionized gas in the nuclear region of the barred Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC~5643 using MUSE integral field observations in the framework of the MAGNUM

THE OFF-CENTERED SEYFERT-LIKE COMPACT EMISSION IN THE NUCLEAR REGION OF NGC 3621

We analyze an optical data cube of the nuclear region of NGC 3621, taken with the integral field unit of the Gemini Multi-object Spectrograph. We found that the previously detected central line

The nuclear environment of NGC 2442: a Compton-thick low-luminosity AGN

The detailed study of nuclear regions of galaxies is important because it can help understanding the active galactic nucleus (AGN) feedback mechanisms, the connections between the nuclei and their

A panchromatic spatially resolved study of the inner 500 pc of NGC 1052

Abstract We analyzed the inner 320 × 535 pc2 of the elliptical galaxy NGC 1052 with integral field spectroscopy, both in the optical and in the near-infrared (NIR). The stellar population analysis
