Abstract
dc.description.abstract
We present a digital catalog of images of 113 galaxies in this paper. These galaxies are all nearby, bright, large, and well resolved. All images were recorded with charge coupled devices (CCDs) at the Palomar Observatory with the 1.5m telescope and at the Lowell Observatory with the 1.1m telescope. At Palomar we used the Thuan-Gunn g,r, and i photometric bands [Thuan & Gunn, PASP, 88, 543 (1976)] to take 3 images each of 31 spiral galaxies; at Lowell we used the B-J and R bands (2 images per galaxy) of the photometric system by Gullixson et al. [ApJS, 99, 281 (1995)] to observe 82 spirals and ellipticals. The galaxies were selected to span the Hubble classification classes. All data are photometrically calibrated with foreground stars removed. Important data on these galaxies published in the Third Reference Catalog of Bright Galaxies (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991) are recorded in the FITS file headers. All files are available through www at http://astro.princeton.edu/frei/galaxy-catalog.html, and Princeton University Press will soon publish the data on CD-ROM.
