The super-thin galaxy IC 5249
by Phil Yock (UoA)
The spiral galaxy IC 5249 is one of several super-thin galaxies seen edge-on. The left image shows our ATCA HI map of IC 5249 overlaid onto an optical image (Abe et al. 1999), while the right image shows a collage of four edge-on galaxies, from top to bottom: IC 5249, NGC 4565, NGC 5866, and ESO510-G013.
