SINFONI Observations of Starclusters in Starburst Galaxies


L.E. Tacconi-Garman & the SINFONI SV Starburst Team


We have used ESO\'s new NIR IFS SINFONI during its Science Verification period to observe the central regions of local starburst galaxies. Being Science Verification observations, the aim was two-fold: to demonstrate SINFONI\'s capabilities while obtaining information on the nature of starclusters in starburst galaxies. The targets chosen include a number of the brighter clusters in NGC1808 and NGC253. Here we present first results.
