Abstract

We present broad- and narrow-band (B, R, Hα+[NII] and Ha continuum) observations of M86 obtained with a focal reducer at the Calar Alto 1.23m telescope, to look for any signs of material cooling out from the hot X-ray emitting ISM. The above figures show a quotient image (13’ × 13’, north up) (Hα cont. — Hα) to the left, and a Hα image (right) from which the light of the stellar spheroid of M86 has been subtracted. Both are overlayed with ROSAT PSPC X-ray contours.
