The Mitchell Spectrograph: Studying Nearby Galaxies with the VIRUS Prototype

Figure 3

Confidence intervals for the inner slope of the DM halo ( ) and the -band mass-to-light ratio ( ) for NGC 2976. The left panel shows the result of leaving both parameters free while fitting. The right panel shows the same fit but constraining to lie within the limits allowed by a synthetic stellar population fit to the integrated optical spectra and SED of the galaxy. Taken from Adams et al. [13].
