ADC_Keywords: Nebulae, planetary ; Radial velocities Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: individual (NGC 1344) - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - planetary nebulae: general - techniques: radial velocities Abstract: We present photometric and kinematic information obtained by measuring 197 planetary nebulae (PNs) discovered in the flattened Fornax elliptical galaxy NGC 1344 (also known as NGC 1340) with an on-band, off-band, and grism+on-band filter technique. Description: The major axis of NGC 1344 lies at a position angle of about 167° (from north through east). Long-slit spectroscopy along the major axis of NGC 1344 was obtained in 2001 October at the Siding Spring 2.3m telescope, using the red arm of the Double Beam Spectrograph in long-slit (6.7') mode with the 1200R grating (35.2Å/mm), no beam splitter, a slit width of 4", and the SITe 1752x532 15m pixel CCD. Long-slit spectroscopy along the minor axis and parallel to the major axis (shifted by 16.5" to the northeast) of NGC 1344 was performed in service mode using the Focal Reducer/Spectrograph FORS2 at the Cassegrain focus of Unit Telescope 2, Kueyen, of the Very Large Telescope in Cerro Paranal, Chile, as part of program ESO 68.B-0173A. The spectra were acquired on 2002 January 7 and 8, with 0.9" seeing and good conditions. File Summary:
