Background Figure Caption: A mosaic of VLA HI observations for a
range of merging galaxies. To the left are 7 nearby systems with
log(Lir)>11.5 (Hibbard & Yun 1996).
To the right are 7 systems from
the Toomre Sequence (Hibbard & van Gorkom 1996; English 1995
and English et al. in preparation; Hibbard et al. 2001; see also here). HI in white contours on optical image
in false spectral colors. All reproduced on approximately the same
linear scale, assuming Ho=75 km/s/Mpc. Click on galaxies for more
observational details. Here are the
HI moment 0 and
HI moment 1 mosaics of the above.
This page contains and index for each of the galaxies appearing on
this URL that have worked on to some degree. See also the
An HI Rogues Gallery for HI maps of 181 peculiar systems.
Tail Imaging Survey for list of over 100 UGC galaixes for which
I also have optical and/or NIR observations, and
Colors of Tidal Tails
for some pretty pics.
The data presented herein is for the edification of all those
interested in weird galaxies. I would be more than happy to collaborate
on studies of any of these galaxies. However please do not reproduce
any of these figures in published form without my prior written consent.
Images may be used without written consent for short-term public
presentations (e.g., classes, talks), but the telescopes used should
be indicated. Thanks - john
