Hubble: Ring-like Hoops and Circular Clump clusters
« on: April 25, 2010, 12:58:21 am »
I considered asking both Alice and Bill whether, or not, this thread should be merged with Bill's 'Hubble Zoo: Ring galaxies' thread and I will leave this open to discussion.
I have, however, taken a good look through both threads and, I believe, Bill's is more specific to clearly defined ring galaxies.
The Hubble Zoo Ring galaxy thread can be found here:
http://www.galaxyzooforum.org/index.php?topic=277602.0

Examples of what Bill is looking for are here:
http://www.galaxyzooforum.org/index.php?topic=277601.0

One important thing to remember when posting in here or in Bill's threads is that they are specific to Hubble images, therefore the image should have the prefix 'zoo-hst' in the title (hst as in Hubble Space Telescope). If it does not have this it is an SDSS image and would be better placed in one of the regular threads, being searched first, of course.

I think this thread will be fine to collect the objects described in the title; hoops, circular clump clusters and proto-rings.

I would also like to promote some discussion in this thread as I've already seen some amazing galaxies that have really fired up my imagination.

Thanks,

Tom

  touch to be sure
