SINFONI observations of NGC 6240

The galaxy merger system NGC 6240 was observed with SINFONI in the K-band (wavelength 2 µm). This object has two nuclei; the image of the southern one is also shown enlarged, together with the corresponding spectrum. The width of each slitlet was 0.025 arcsec and the seeing was 0.8 arcsec. The total integration time on the galaxy was 80 min. The false-colours in the images represent regions of different surface brightness.
