ABSTRACT
In order to better understand the hot stellar populations of E and S0 galaxies,
we observed six objects using the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope. Through
our 10 00 \Theta 56 00 aperture, we observed the centers of M 49, M 60, M 87, M 89,
NGC 3115, and NGC 3379 with varying exposure times and signal­to­noise.
The far­ultraviolet (FUV) spectra were obtained during orbital night as part of
the Astro­2 mission on the Space Shuttle Endeavor in March 1995, and cover
the spectral range of 820 š A to 1840 š A with a resolution of 2--4 š A. This sample
