Fig. 3


Rotation in NGC 362. Upper panel: difference between the mean velocities on each side of the cluster with respect to a line passing through the cluster centre with a position angle (PA, measured from north to east, north = 0°, east = 90°) as a function of the adopted PA. Our preferred solution is represented by the dotted line and is obtained from bona-fide members from our sample (i.e. stars with abundance estimates). Lower panels: the rotation curve of NGC 362. In the left panel the RV in the system of the cluster is plotted as a function of distance from the centre projected onto the axis perpendicular to the best fit rotation axis found in the upper panel. the meaning of the symbols are the same as in Figs. 1 and 2, above. The right panel shows the comparison of the cumulative RV distributions of stars having X(PA0) > 0.0 (continuous line) and X(PA0) < 0.0 (dotted line).
