An X-ray analysis of the cD cluster Abell 2199


We describe the ROSAT analysis of the cD cluster Abell 2199. The spatial distribution is found to be slightly elongated, with an axis ratio of ≈ 0.8 and position angle of ≈ 45 degrees anticlockwise from due North about the cluster centre. The surface brightness profile reveals a significant cooling flow of ≈ 250 M yr−1, although a lower mass deposition rate… (More)
