Differential population synthesis of 17 early-type galaxy nuclei in the Fornax cluster

Pickles, Andrew John


Flux calibrated spectra have been obtained of the nuclei of 12 Elliptical and 5 Lenticular galaxies in the FORNAX cluster, at a resolution of 10 - 20 A and in the wavelength range 0.36 to 0.72 micron. The observations have been extended to a long wavelength limit of 0.88 or 1.0 micron for 12 of the galaxies. The galaxies observed cover a 6 magnitude range of absolute magnitude and define the form and intrinsic width of the cluster colour-magnitude relation well. The galaxy spectra have...[Show more]
