Description

The identification of galaxies with "overly massive" black holes requires two measurements: a black hole mass (Mbh) and a host spheroid mass (${M}_{{\rm{sph,\ast }}}$). Here we provide our measurements for NGC 1277. Our structural decomposition reveals that NGC 1277 is dominated by a "classical" spheroid with a Sérsic index n = 5.3, a half-light radius ${R}_{{\rm{e,major}}}=2.1\;{\rm{kpc}}$, and a stellar mass of $2.7\times {10}^{11}\quad {M}_{\odot }$ (using ${M}_{*}/{L}_{V}=11.65$,...[Show more]
