Abstract

An atlas of the nuclear spectra of 58 Seyfert galaxies and six galaxies with nuclear H II regions is presented. For all but three galaxies, the range of rest wavelengths covered is about 6000-6800 A, with spectral resolution at H-alpha either 45 km/s or 130 km/s. Widths are given for the emission lines forbidden Fe VII 6086 A, forbidden O I 6300 A, H-alpha, forbidden N II 6584, and forbidden S II 6717,6731 A. In all, widths for some 210 lines in 53 galaxies are listed. A comparison is made between the present and previous line width measurements.
