The Local Volume HI Survey (LVHIS)


CEN06 (HIPASS J1305-40) is a dwarf galaxy, also known as KK 182, at a TRGB distance of 5.78 ± 0.42 Mpc (Karachentsev et al. 2007). It is located behind M 83 and Cen A, separated by ~1 and 2 Mpc, respectively. CEN06's nearest neighbour is likely NGC 5011C, located more than 3.5 degrees away (vhel = 647 km/s, Saviane & Jerjen 2007). Our ATCA HI maps show the emission centred on the optical galaxy and a north-south velocity gradient. We measure FHI = 4.5 Jy km/s, in agreement with HIPASS (Koribalski et al. 2004), and derive an HI mass of 3.5 × 107 M. CEN06 was detected in Hα by Cote et al. (2009), and Crnojevic et al. (2012) derive a stellar mass close to 106 M.
