Maps of the emission from NGC 6762. Upper row from left to right: the stellar component distribution as traced by a continuum map made from the median flux between 6390–6490 Å, a spectral region free of line emission (“pure continuum”); the EW(Hα); Hβ; [Oiii]λ5007. Bottom row from left to right: [Oi]λ6300; Hα; [Nii]λ6584; [Sii]λ6717, 6731. All maps are presented in logarithmic scale to emphasize the relevant morphological features. Flux units are 10-16 erg cm-2 s-1. The axis origin (i.e. the center of the PPak bundle) is marked with a cross. Contours corresponding to the stellar continuum map are overplotted on all maps for reference. The contour corresponding to the minimun level is  − 1.70 dex and the interval between contours is 0.25 dex. North is up and east to the left. The pixel size is 1″ (~217 pc at our assumed distance to NGC 6762 of 45 Mpc). A bar showing the physical scale of 5 kpc is plotted at the lower righthand corner in the continuum map.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
