Ground-based & HST images of the nearby galaxy SBS 1543+593 ( z = 0.009) show it to be a Low Surface Brightness (LSB) galaxy with a central surface brig htness ofμB(0) = 23.2 mag arcsec −2 and scale length 0.9h−1 kpc, values typical for the local LSB galaxy population. The galaxy lies directly in front of the QSO HS 1543+5921 ( z = 0.807); an HST STIS spectrum of the quasar reveals a damped Ly α (DLyα) line at the redshift of the interloper with an H I column densi ty of logN(H I) = 20.35, as… CONTINUE READING
