ARG0001ips - host(s)?

  • JeanTate by JeanTate

    Also, how would you describe the radio morphology?

    One host may the UV source GALEXMSC J083656.42+333237.4, which is just 0.022' from zph ??? SDSS J083656.34+333236.5:

    Not sure how reliable this is, but fracDeV _g is 0.12, and _r 0, so maybe an #SDRAGN candidate?

    Contour overlay sure would be nice, wouldn't you say? 😃

    I think that the northernmost radio component is a compact source that is unrelated to the one in the middle of the subject. An overlay would certainly help as I am not entirely convinced about the host that you picked above... 😉

    Here's the contour overlay.

    The contour overlay image in this post was created from sources, and using methods, described in this RGZ Talk

    SDSS J083658.17+333240.6 which is slightly E or NE of the centre of the emission, has an NED reference of #asymmetric #double, and a number of radio catalogue references. SIMBAD has the radio reference, NVSS J083657+333245, which seems to align more to the centre of the lobes, W of SDSS J083658.17+333240.6.

    The closest radio source for the lobe to the N is SDSS J083654.71+333322.4, which has a First reference in NED. The SIMBAD reference, FIRST J083655.3+333332, aligns more with the lobe in the above contour overlay image.

    SDSS J083654.71+333322.4

    Both the above objects are listed as stars in SDSS.

    And SDSS J083656.34+333236.5, below, does have a 6C radio reference in NED.

    Thanks to @ChrisMolloy's overlay, I'd say it's not at obvious that there's an optical host (or hosts) for any of the radio emission.

    The glare from the star is likely too much for a contour overlay on a WISE canvass to show anything, sadly. 😦
