The ionized gas in the spiral galaxy NGC 3359. I. Photometry. Rozas M., Zurita A., Beckman J.E. <Astron. Astrophys. 354, 823 (2000)> =2000A&A...354..823R
ADC_Keywords: H II regions ; Galaxies, optical Keywords: ISM: HII regions - galaxies: individual: NGC 3359 - galaxies: spiral Description: From an H-α image of the spiral barred galaxy NGC 3359, an HII region catalogue is composed. The catalogue comprises the position, mean radius and the calibrated H-alpha luminosity of each HII region. The observations of the image of NGC 3359 in H-α were carried out in February 1996, on the Isaac Newton telescope in La Palma in the context of the BARS international time project of the Canary Islands Observatories. A CCD TeK-7 detector was used with a projected pixel size of 0.59". File Summary:
