Surface Brightness Fluctuation Distances for Nearby Dwarf Elliptical Galaxies

Jerjen, Helmut; Rekola, R; Takalo, L; Coleman, Matthew; Valtonen, M

Description

We obtained deep B and R-band CCD images for the dwarf elliptical (dE) galaxies DDO 44, UGC 4998, KK98 77, DDO 71, DDO 113, and UGC 7356 at the Nordic Optical Telescope. Employing Fourier analysis technique we measure stellar R-band surface brightness fluctuations (SBFs) and magnitudes in 29 different fields of the galaxies. Independent tip of the red giant branch distances for DDO 44, KK98 77, DDO 71 are used to convert their set of apparent into absolute SBF magnitudes. The results are...[Show more]
