The growth of brightest cluster galaxies through mergers

D.N. Viljoen D. Gilbank S.I. Loubser

Using the RSS longslit (with PG 1300 grating) to determine accurate relative velocity differences between merging candidates.

The growth of Brightest Cluster Galaxiesthrough mergers.

SALT

Verification of the technique on nearby SDSS merger.

z ~ 0.08

∆V = 2.0 ± 37.0 km/s

SDSS


  • Pilot project of 10 galaxies awarded time.

  • 4 galaxies observed.

  • - 3 not useable due to poor slit alignment and SALTICAM problems.
