ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; Radial velocities ; Velocity dispersion Keywords: black hole physics - galaxies: active - galaxies: nuclei - galaxies: structure - stellar dynamics Abstract: We present a stellar dynamical estimate of the black hole (BH) mass in the Seyfert 1 galaxy, NGC 4151. We analyze ground-based spectroscopy as well as imaging data from the ground and space, and we construct three-integral axisymmetric models in order to constrain the BH mass and mass-to-light ratio. Description: We made use of a set of ground-based BVR images from the MDM 1.3m McGraw-Hill telescope as well as Hubble Space Telescope (HST) imaging data obtained with the High Resolution Channel (HRC) of the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).
