    Can anyone direct me to a good source of graphs of galaxy rotation curves. I need graphs that show both the observed curve data points and the expected curve along with the names of the galaxies and labeled axis.

    Thanks

    Thanks, I had done that, but was only able to find 2 graphs, NGC 3198 and M33 that had both the observed data and the expected data.

    EDIT: I didn't look deep enough, actually this search proved fruitful, thanks.
