  • We have obtained long-slit observations of the circumnuclear region of M87 at three different locations, with a spatial sampling of 0028 using the Faint Object Camera f/48 spectrograph on board HST. These data allow us to determine the rotation curve of the inner ~1'' of the ionized gas disk in [O II] λ3727 to a distance as close as 007 (5 pc) to the dynamic center, thereby significantly improving on both the spatial resolution and coverage of previous FOS observations. We have modeled the… CONTINUE READING
