Internal dynamics of Abell 1240: a galaxy cluster with symmetric double radio relics. Barrena R., Girardi M., Boschin W., Dasi M. <Astron. Astrophys., 503, 357-371 (2009)> =2009A&A...503..357B (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

We aim to obtain new insights into the internal dynamics of the cluster Abell 1240, which appears to contain two roughly symmetric radio relics, separated by ∼2h70-1Mpc. Description: Our analysis is based mainly on redshift data for 145 galaxies mostly acquired at the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo and on new photometric data acquired at the Isaac Newton Telescope. We also use X-ray data from the Chandra archive and photometric data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (Data Release 7). We combine galaxy velocities and positions to select 89 cluster galaxies and analyze the internal dynamics of the Abell 1237 + Abell 1240 cluster complex, Abell 1237 being a close companion of Abell 1240 in its southern direction.
