... resolved[*]
Note that we also determined the heliocentric radial velocities of the sharp interstellar features: we obtain RVs of  $-16.6 \pm 15.0$, $-7.8 \pm 10.5$ and $-10.2 \pm 14.0$ km s-1 for the He  I $\lambda $ 3889, Ca  II $\lambda $ 3934 and Ca  II $\lambda $ 3968 lines. The $1\sigma$ dispersions listed here provide some rough indication of the accuracy of our wavelength calibration.

... -7.7 mag[*]
Moffat et al. (1994) derived an average $M_{\rm V}$ of -7.7 for the three H-rich WN stars in NGC 3603, whilst Crowther & Dessart (1998) re-evaluated their distance and reddening and obtained an average of -6.9 mag.
