Radial velocities of 94 galaxies brighter than aboutVtot = 20 mag in the direction of the central Fornax cluster have been measured 1 . Except for 8 Fornax mem- bers, all galaxies lie in the background. Among the 8 mem- bers, there are 5 nucleated dwarf ellipticals that are al- ready listed in the FCC (Ferguson 1989). Two of the 3 \new" members are very compact and have surface bright- nesses comparable to globular clusters, however their lu- minosities are in the range of dwarf elliptical… 
A large population of ultra-compact dwarfs and bright intracluster globulars in the fornax cluster
All the previously cataloged ultracompact dwarf (UCD) galaxies in the Fornax and Virgo clusters have 17.5 <b J < 20. Using the 2dF spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope, we have carried out
Ultracompact Dwarf Galaxies in the Fornax Cluster
By utilizing the large multiplexing advantage of the Two-degree Field spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope, we have been able to obtain a complete spectroscopic sample of all objects in a
Ultra-compact dwarfs beyond the centre of the Fornax galaxy cluster: hints of UCD formation in low-density environments
Ultra-compact dwarf galaxies (UCDs) were serendipitously discovered by spectroscopic surveys in the Fornax cluster twenty years ago. Nowadays, it is commonly accepted that many bright UCDs are the
STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF ULTRA-COMPACT DWARF GALAXIES IN THE FORNAX AND VIRGO CLUSTERS
We present a detailed analysis of high-resolution two-band Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys imaging of 21 ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) galaxies in the Virgo and Fornax Clusters. The
SPECTROSCOPIC METALLICITIES FOR FORNAX ULTRACOMPACT DWARF GALAXIES, GLOBULAR CLUSTERS, AND NUCLEATED DWARF ELLIPTICAL GALAXIES
Various formation channels for the puzzling ultracompact dwarf galaxies (UCDs) have been proposed in the last few years. To better judge some of the competing scenarios, we present spectroscopic
A search for ultra-compact dwarf galaxies in the Centaurus galaxy cluster
Aim: To extend the investigations of ultra-compact dwarf galaxies (UCDs) beyond the well studied Fornax and Virgo clusters. Methods: We measured spectroscopic redshifts of about 400 compact object
Peculiar compact stellar systems in the Fornax cluster
We search for hints to the origin and nature of compact stellar systems in the magnitude range of ultracompact dwarf galaxies in deep wide-field imaging data of the Fornax cluster core. We visually
The chandra fornax survey. I. The cluster environment
We present the first results of a deep Chandra survey of the inner ~1° of the Fornax cluster of galaxies. Ten 50 ks pointings were obtained in a mosaic centered on the giant elliptical galaxy NGC
Ultra compact objects in the Fornax cluster of galaxies: Globular clusters or dwarf galaxies?
The relation between the Ultra Compact Objects (hereafter UCOs) recently discovered in the Fornax cluster (Drinkwater et al. [CITE]; Hilker et al. [CITE]) and the brightest globular clusters
The evolution and star formation of dwarf galaxies in the Fornax Cluster
We present the results of a spectroscopic survey of 675 bright (16.5 < b(J) < 18) galaxies in a 6 degrees field centred on the Fornax cluster with the FLAIR-II spectrograph on the UK Schmidt
