We have obtained high-resolution K ′ -band images of the powerful z = 1.206 radio galaxy 3C 324 with the Subaru telescope under seeing conditions of 0 ′′ .3–0 ′′ .4. We clearly resolved the galaxy and directly compared it to the optical images obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope. The host galaxy of 3C 324 is revealed to be a moderately luminous elliptical galaxy with a smooth light profile. The effective radius of the galaxy, as determined by profile fitting, is 1.3± 0 ′′ .1 (1.2 kpc… Expand
