High resolution broad and narrow band images and long slit spectroscopy of the peculiar galaxy IC 1182 are pre- sented. The analysis of the broad band images reveals a distorted morphology with a large, heavily obscured disk-like structure and several knots in the central region. Galactic material, some of it in the form of two slender tails, is detected well beyond the main body of the galaxy. The second, fainter tail and several knots are reported here for the first time. The galaxy has color… 
The peculiar galaxy Mkn 298 revisited with integral field spectroscopy
Spectroscopic and imaging data of the peculiar galaxy Mkn 298 are presented. Narrow-band Hα and broad-band R images are used to study the star formation rate in the galaxy and its morphology, which
The giant star forming halo associated with the radio galaxy PKS 1932-46
We report the discovery of a giant (∼160 kpc) knotty extended emission line nebula associated with the radio galaxy PKS 1932−46 at z= 0.23. The 2-d long slit spectra, obtained with VLT-FORS2 at a
This paper presents the first results of an Hα imaging survey of galaxies in the central regions of the A2151 cluster. A total of 50 sources were detected in Hα, from which 41 were classified as
Isolated galaxies: residual of primordial building blocks?
Context. The mass assembly is believed to be the dominant process of early galaxy formation. This mechanism of galaxy building can proceed either by repeated major mergers with other systems, or by
The scaling relation of early-type galaxies in clusters - II. Spectroscopic data for galaxies in eight nearby clusters
Aims. We present in this work low and intermediate resolution spectroscopic data collected for 152 early type galaxies in 8 nearby clusters with z � 0.10. Methods. We use low resolution data to
Delayed triggering of radio Active Galactic Nuclei in gas-rich minor mergers in the local Universe
We examine the processes triggering star formation and active galactic nucleus (AGN) activity in a sample of 25 low-redshift (z 107 K) brightness temperature required for an mJIVE-20 detection allows
Spatially resolved spectroscopy has been obtained for a sample of 27 star-forming (SF) galaxies selected from our deep Hα survey of the Hercules cluster. We have applied spectral synthesis models to


Candidate tidal dwarf galaxies associated with the Stephan's Quintet
We present kinematic and photometric evidence for the presence of seven candidate tidal dwarf galaxies in Stephan's Quintet. The central regions of the two most probable parent galaxies, NGC 7319 and
Chandra Observations of “The Antennae” Galaxies (NGC 4038/4039). III. X-Ray Properties and Multiwavelength Associations of the X-Ray Source Population
We investigate the nature of the luminous X-ray source population detected in a (72 ks) Chandra ACIS-S observation of NGC 4038/4039, the Antennae galaxies. We derive the average X-ray spectral
Spectrophotometry of Seyfert 2 galaxies and narrow-line radio galaxies
Results are reported for a spectrophotometric survey of several Seyfert 2 galaxies, intermediate Seyferts, and narrow-line radio galaxies. The emission-line spectra of the galaxies are analyzed,
Maps of Dust Infrared Emission for Use in Estimation of Reddening and Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation Foregrounds
We present a full-sky 100 μm map that is a reprocessed composite of the COBE/DIRBE and IRAS/ISSA maps, with the zodiacal foreground and confirmed point sources removed. Before using the ISSA maps, we
Spectral Classification of Emission-Line Galaxies
A revised method of classification of narrow-line active galaxies and H II region-like galaxies is proposed. It involves the line ratios which take full advantage of the physical distinction between
Formation of gas discs in merging galaxies
Observations indicate that much of the interstellar gas in merging galaxies may settle into extended gaseous discs. Here, I present simulations of disc formation in mergers of gas-rich galaxies. Up
Non-confirmation of reported HI clouds without optical counterparts in the Hercules Cluster
21 cm HI line observations were made with the Arecibo Gregorian telescope of 9 HI clouds in the Hercules Cluster which were reported as tenative detections in a VLA HI study of the cluster (Dickey
The scaling relations of early--type galaxies in clusters I. Surface photometry in seven nearby clusters
This is the first paper of a series investigating the scaling relations of early–type galaxies in clusters. Here we illustrate the multi–band imagery and the image reduction and calibration

We present a full sky 100 micron map that is a reprocessed composite of the COBE/DIRBE and IRAS/ISSA maps, with the zodiacal foreground and confirmed point sources removed. Before using the ISSA
The LINERs Revisited
The present consideration of the source of energy of low-ionization nuclear emission-line regions (LINERs) proceeds by analyzing a large sample of objects; the emission line ratios thus obtained are
