Comparison between the observed NIFS velocity dispersion map and three representative Schwarzschild models, all at the same M/L = 1.80 and with different black hole masses. From left to right: the data, the formal best fit MBH (using LOESS) model, a model with MBH a factor of five higher than the previous one (70% higher than the derived upper limit), and the model with MBH for which the sphere of influence is the same as our spatial resolution. The MBH values are given above the maps. Note the appearance of the central velocity dispersion peak for models above the formal upper limit. The same comparison is given for the JAM Vrms models in the lower panels.
