= optical peak
× = center K-isophotes
nuclear starburst - offset from optical nucleus
Questions: - Double nucleus? center K-isophotes
×
1. - Where is the dynamical center?
Conclusions from SINFONI data:
- dynamical nucleus offset from optical peak by 3″
- no mass concentration detected at dynamical nucleus
- mass of optical peak ~108 M (dynamics)
K-band isophotes
