Optical IFU Observations of the Brightest Cluster Galaxy NGC 4696: The Case for a Minor Merger and Shock-excited Filaments

Farage, Catherine; McGregor, Peter; Dopita, Michael; Bicknell, Geoffrey

Description

We present deep optical integral-field spectroscopic observations of the nearby (z ∼ 0.01) brightest cluster galaxy NGC 4696 in the core of the Centaurus Cluster, made with the Wide Field Spectrograph on the Australian National University 2.3 m telescop
