NGC 3077

Title: Observations of NGC 3077 Galaxy in Narrow Band [SII] and H_alpha Filters
Authors: M. Andjelic, K. Stavrev, B. Arbutina, D. Ilic, D. Urosevic

We present observations of the HI tidal arm near dwarf galaxy NGC 3077 (member of the M81 galaxy group) in narrow band [SII] and H_alpha filters. Observations were carried out in March 2011 with the 2m RCC telescope at NAO Rozhen, Bulgaria. Our search for possible supernova remnant candidates (identified as sources with enhanced [SII] emission relative to their H_alpha emission) in this region yielded no sources of this kind. Nevertheless, we found a number of objects with significant H_alpha emission that probably represent uncatalogued, low brightness HII regions.
