The planetary nebulae and existing kinematics are used to explore the rotation of this merger remnant and constrain dynamical models. Using FORS2 on the VLT, the PN velocities were measured using a counter-dispersed slitless-spectroscopy technique that produced the largest-to-date sample outside of the Local Group. Spherical, non-rotating, constant-anisotropy Jeans models were con- strained by observations of the planetary nebulae and existing integrated light spectra. Description: The planetary nebula kinematics were measured using counter-dispersed spectroscopy with FORS2 on the VLT. NGC 1316 was observed with 7 fields on 3-5 November 2002. File Summary:
