Structure and kinematics of edge-on galaxy discs - I. Observations of the stellar kinematics

Kregel, M; van der Kruit, P C; Freeman, Kenneth


We present deep optical long-slit spectra of 17 edge-on spiral galaxies of intermediate to late morphological type, mostly parallel to their major axes and in a few cases parallel to the minor axes. The line-of-sight stellar kinematics are obtained from the stellar absorption lines using the improved cross-correlation technique. In general, the stellar kinematics are regular and can be traced well into the disc-dominated region. The mean stellar velocity curves are far from solid-body,...[Show more]
