.gifs (unless otherwise noted) of work in progress.
Figure to your left is a 900sec B-band image, taken on 18nov96
on the UH 88".
Details on the observations can be found in
HI in IR Luminous Mergers
(Hibbard \& Yun 1998, in preparation).
Brief discription of the HI and R-band light of this system
can be found in Hibbard &
Yun, 1996. The galaxy is in a
rather messy region of the
sky, optically speaking, and had to be massaged to get at
the faint light. To get an idea of this, see the
after images. I refer to the
"after" image as the cleaned image in the following.
The HI data were obtained at the VLA in 9/94 (CnB array) & 1/95 (DnC array).
Deep R image obtained from the UH 88" in 6/95 and 11/95
Halpha data obtained from the UH 88" in 11/95
B,V images obtained from the UH 88" in 11/96
