Observations in P98 ended

April, 19th, 2017

After the first three semesters of GASP observations, 60 galaxies have been observed. 65 hours of observations have been carried out (72%) so far. The data have the excellent quality we expected and the results obtained so far are extremely interesting.

18 galaxies observed in P98

January, 10th, 2017

So far, in P98, 18 galaxies were observed by MUSE. 12 of them are in clusters, 6 of them are in less dense environments. Two galaxies belong to the JClass=2, six galaxies belong to the JClass=1 (the weakest cases) and eleven galaxies belong to the control sample (i.e. galaxies not showing signs of stripping).

NO GASP OBSERVATIONS THIS FALL

November, 16th, 2016

As announced in the ESO Call for Proposals for Period 98, no science observations on VLT UT4 are foreseen from early October to late December 2016. This is due to the extensive installation and commissioning activities. GASP observations will be resumed in January 2017.

11 galaxies observed in P97

September, 30th, 2016

In P97, 11 galaxies were observed by MUSE. All of them are in clusters. Five galaxies belong to the JClass=5, four galaxies belong to the JClass=4 and two galaxies belong to the JClass=2.

24 galaxies observed in P96

March, 31st, 2016

In P96, 24 galaxies were observed by MUSE. 19 of them are in clusters, 5 of them are in less dense environments. Two galaxies belong to the JClass=5 (extreme cases of visual evidence for stripping signatures in the optical bands), seven galaxies belong to the JClass=4 and fifteen galaxies belong to the JClass=3.
