An HST/ACS view of the inhomogeneous outer halo of M31
We present a high precision photometric view of the stellar populations in the outer halo of M31, using data taken with the Hubble Space Telescope/Advanced Camera for Surveys. We analyse the field populations adjacent to 11 luminous globular clusters which sample the galactocentric radial range 18 ≲ R ≲ 100 kpc and reach a photometric depth of ∼2.5 mag below the horizontal branch (m F814W ∼ 27 mag). The colour-magnitude diagrams are well populated out to ∼60 kpc and exhibit relatively...[Show more]
