As part of an ongoing program on the main parameters of early-type galaxies, we have performed long-slit absorption spectroscopy on a sample of 21 ellipticals and S0s. We present determinations of the central velocity dispersion and, for 18 objects, velocity-dispersion profiles and rotation curves.
Key words: galaxies: elliptical & lenticular, cD / galaxies: kinematics and dynamics / galaxies: fundamental parameters
