Place your lenticular (S0) galaxies in this thread
« on: November 01, 2007, 02:12:21 pm »
I'm almost certain that this is a lenticular (S0) galaxy. But, since we have no sticky to place them in, I had to settle for putting it here. It's a shame that there's no sticky for lenticular galaxies, since many of them are some of the most beautiful objects that we classify.

Note for new Zoo members: We classify these (i.e. lenticular (S0) galaxies) as ellipticals.

trevor faller:  I'm not too bright, is that a yes or no.. to me, a SO/E is better than a SO..  ;)
I think I read somewhere how I can find the classifications so I can tell them apart.. do you
know where I can find it?  Thanks..

Hi jlowe, I think it's pretty safe to say that you've found a lenticular (S0) galaxy and a nice one at that. ;) As far as classification in "galaxy analysis", it really doesn't matter, since it is standard procedure for us to classify lenticular (S0) galaxies as ellipticals anyway, if that's your question.

Hi Eric & everyone, what can you tell me about this one, first posted in Analysis Tips?  (Got some amusing opinions there!) Thanks

Hi Eric.. My question is - is there a difference between lenticular (S0) and ellipticals? If so what? And how do we determine difference... thanks.. Jay

For general information.. I stumbled onto something that might help.. 'SIMBAD search' has a column "sp. type", which might have the galaxy's morphology.. I think I said that right  :-\ ..
