Kinematic Masses of Super Star Clusters in NGC 1569

  • Andrea M. Gilbert (a1) and James R. Graham (a1)

Abstract

We summarize recent results from our study of the massive young super star clusters (SSCs) in the dwarf galaxy NGC 1569, and present new high-resolution NIRSPEC spectra that permit the measurement of a cluster's intrinsic stellar velocity dispersion. Thus we derive kinematic masses for the two brightest SSCs: 2.3 × 105 Msun for SSC B, and 3.9 × 105 and 4.4 × 105 Msun for the two components of SSC A.
