Fig. 4


Nuclear region of NGC 7469 as observed by HST. The image is obtained from an observation taken with the ACS/HRC F330W filter in 2002, and is displayed with a logarithmic intensity scale. The inner starburst ring is visible at about 1–3′′ from the centre of the AGN. The outer starburst ring (not displayed) is at 8–10′′ from the centre. For reference, the circular aperture of our Swift UVOT observations has a radius of 5′′. We find an extended soft X-ray emission component by Chandra at 1.5–12′′ from the centre (Fig. 11).
