New distances of unresolved dwarf elliptical galaxies in the vicinity of the Local Group

Rekola, Rami; Jerjen, Helmut; Flynn, Chris

Description

We present Surface Brightness Fluctuation distances of nine early-type dwarf galaxies and the S0 galaxy NGC 4150 in the Local Volume based on deep B- and A-band CCD images obtained with the 2.56 m Nordic Optical Telescope. Typically, six stellar fields at various galactocentric distances have been chosen for each galaxy as appropriately free of foreground stars and other contaminants, and Fourier analysed to determine the distances, which are found to lie in the range of 3 to 16 Mpc. The SBF...[Show more]
