ATCA Results

Project C1341: ATCA EW352 array (6-h, beam = 179.6" x 108.5", natural weighting), observed 12-02-2005, reduced 13-02-2005

IF2: wide-band 20-cm continuum (beam = 88.0" x 63.1", robust=0 weighting).
No 20-cm continuum emission was detected from HIPASS J1131-31.

HIPASS J1131-31 is a newly discovered dwarf galaxy hiding behind the star CD-30 9279 (B = 11.1 mag, V = 10.5 mag). Th high proper motion of the star means that it will have moved out of the way in about 100 years.
Type = BCD?; optical diameter = tiny; Dh75 = 5.8 Mpc.
