Abstract / Description:Radial velocities of 468 globular clusters
around NGC 1399, the central galaxy in the
Fornax cluster, have been obtained with FORS2 and
the Mask Exchange Unit (MXU) at the ESO Very
Large Telescope. This is the largest sample of
globular cluster velocities around any galaxy
obtained so far. The mean velocity uncertainty
is 50 km s-1. This data sample is
accurate and large enough to be used in studies
of the mass distribution of NGC 1399 and the
properties of its globular cluster system. Here
we describe the observations and the reduction
procedure, and we discuss the uncertainties of
the resulting velocities. The complete sample of
cluster velocities that is used in a dynamical
study of NGC 1399 is tabulated. A subsample is
compared with previously published values.
