  • The dust properties of all early-type galaxies imaged with the Planetary Camera of the Hubble Space Telescope in cycles I-III are examined. Dust is detected in 31 out of 64 galaxies, although the sample is biased against the detection of dust. From the distribution of observed axis ratios of the dust features it is inferred that 78%+/-16% of early-type galaxies contain nuclear dust. The detection rate in radio galaxies is higher (72%+/-16%) than in radio-quiet galaxies (33%+/-9%). In radio… CONTINUE READING
