ARG0000qu0, morphology? hosts?

  • ChrisMolloy by ChrisMolloy

    Here's ARG0000qu0. As per the classification comments left, this emission appears to be either a #bent #doublelobe or #triple, or a #wat with a #compact lobe to the east (if this lobe is separate from the main centre lobes). The emission could also be two #doublelobes. This ARG field is cross referenced in the How to describe the radio morphology? thread.

    With regards to possible radio hosts for this emission, there are radio references for SDSS J105409.80+471441.1, which is a spectroscopic M3III STAR. This object has radio citations in NED and is located in the middle of the centre lobe emission.

    Interestingly, there appears to be an object slightly east south east of SDSS J105409.80+471441.1, which seems to be referenced in SIMBAD but is not listed as a photometric object in SDSS DR14. This object is very faint in SDSS DR14. Furthermore, there is an ALLWISE listing just to the south east of SDSS J105409.80+471441.1, ALLWISE J105409.95+471440.5.

    If SDSS J105409.80+471441.1 and the other potential hosts listed above are not the source of any of these lobes, then this could possibly be a #nooptical, #noir, and maybe, an #ifrs emission.

    As always, comments, suggestions, welcome.
