We report the case of the presence of counterrotating stars in the inner parts of the early-type spiral NGC 4698. Inside 1.2 kpc the major-axis stellar kinematics reveals a dynamically cold component counterrotating with respect to the gas and to the rest of the stars.

Abstract

We report the case of the presence of counterrotating stars in the inner parts of the early-type spiral NGC 4698. Inside 1.2 kpc the major-axis stellar kinematics reveals a dynamically cold component counterrotating with respect to the gas and to the rest of the stars.
