The Millennium Galaxy Catalogue: bulge-disc decomposition of 10 095 nearby galaxies

We have modelled the light distribution in 10095 galaxies from the Millennium Galaxy Catalogue (MGC), providing publicly available structural catalogues for a large, representative sample of galaxies in the local Universe. Three different models were used: (1) a single Sérsic function for the whole galaxy, (2) a bulge-disc decomposition model using a de Vaucouleurs (R1/4) bulge plus exponential disc, (3) a bulge-disc decomposition model using a Sérsic (R1/n) bulge plus exponential disc.
