The cluster of galaxies A1795 hosts a 46 kpc long filament at its core, which is clearly visible in the light of Hα and X-ray emission. We present optical slit spectroscopy and deeper Chandra X-ray data of the filament. The optical spectra reveal that the bulk of the filament is quiescent (with σ< 130 km s −1 ), although considerable velocity structure is apparent around the powerful radio source in the central cluster galaxy, where a direct interaction is occurring between the radio plasma and… CONTINUE READING
