Abstract

We have used the FLAMES multi-integral field unit system of the European Southern Observatory (VLT) centered on the cluster MS0451.6-0305 at z = 0.5386 to obtain the spatially resolved kinematics of the cluster members. The spectral data are supported by HST/ACS images that provide immediate morphological information of the cluster galaxies. The relevant structural parameters such as inclination, size, and orientation derived from optical high angular resolution images are compared with those derived from the kinematics. Our final goals are: 1. to derive the Tully-Fisher relation for cluster galaxies with regular kinematics. 2. to obtain the dynamical masses from resolved kinematics and stellar masses from optical images to be compared with local measurements.
