The dynamics of the merging galaxy cluster system A2256: evidence for a new subcluster.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present 236 new radial velocities of galaxies in the cluster A2256 measured with the WIYN Hydra Multi-Object Spectrograph. Combined with the previous work of Fabricant, Kent, & Kurtz, we have velocities for a total of 319 galaxies, of which 277 are cluster members. In addition to the new radial velocities, we present a 3x3 image mosaic in the R band of the central 19'x19' region of A2256, from which we obtained photometry for 861 galaxies. These data provide strong evidence for a merger event between two groups. In addition, we present evidence for the presence of a third group, on the outer reaches of the system, that is just now beginning to merge with the system.
