The early-type galaxy NGC 1316 hosts about 10^7 solar masses of dust within a central radius of 5 kpc. These prominent dust structures are believed to have an external origin, which is also a popular interpretation for other dusty early-type galaxies. We use archival Hubble Space Telescope/ACS data to construct colour maps that delineate the dust pattern in detail, and we compare these data with maps constructed with data from MUSE of the VLT at the European Southern Observatory. Twelve MUSE…

CONSTRAINING THE OUTBURST PROPERTIES OF THE SMBH IN FORNAX A THROUGH X-RAY, INFRARED, AND RADIO OBSERVATIONS

Combined Spitzer, Chandra, XMM-Newton, and VLA observations of the giant radio galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A) show a radio jet and X-ray cavities from active galactic nucleus (AGN) outbursts most likely

Mid-infrared dust in two nearby radio galaxies, NGC 1316 (Fornax A) and NGC 612 (PKS 0131-36)

Most radio galaxies are hosted by giant gas-poor ellipticals, but some contain significant amounts of dust, which is likely to be of external origin. In order to characterize the mid-IR properties of

The globular cluster system of NGC 1316 - III. Kinematic complexity

The merger remnant NGC 1316 (Fornax A) is one of the most important objects regarding the investigation of merger-related processes. We use kinematical data of globular clusters (GCs) and the diffuse

Atomic and molecular gas in the merger galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A) and its environment

We present and interpret observations of atomic and molecular gas toward the southern elliptical galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A), a strong double-lobe radio source with a disturbed optical morphology that

Evolution of Gas and Stars in the Merger Galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A)

We present optical and archival X-ray data on the disturbed-morphology radio elliptical galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A), which displays numerous low surface brightness shells, loops, and tails. An

The globular cluster system of NGC 1316 IV. Nature of the star cluster complex SH2

The light of the merger remnant NGC 1316 is dominated by old and intermediate-age stars. The only sign of current star formation in this big galaxy is the HII region SH2, an isolated star cluster

Ionized gas in E/S0 galaxies with dust lanes (Finkelman+, 2010)

We report the results of multicolour observations of 30 E/S0 galaxies with dust lanes. For each galaxy we obtained broad-band images and narrow-band images using interference filters isolating the

SPATIALLY EXTENDED NA i D RESONANT EMISSION AND ABSORPTION IN THE GALACTIC WIND OF THE NEARBY INFRARED-LUMINOUS QUASAR F05189-2524

Emission from metal resonant lines has recently emerged as a potentially powerful probe of the structure of galactic winds at low and high redshift. In this work, we present only the second example

Dusty Winds in Active Galactic Nuclei: Reconciling Observations with Models

This Letter presents a revised radiative transfer model for the infrared (IR) emission of active galactic nuclei (AGNs). While current models assume that the IR is emitted from a dusty torus in the

Properties of dust in early-type galaxies

We report optical extinction properties of dust for a sample of 26 early-type galaxies based on the analysis of their multicolour CCD observations. The wavelength dependence of dust extinction for
