Hubble Space Telescope Imaging of Globular Clusters in the Edge-on Spiral Galaxies NGC 44565 and NGC 5907

Kissler-Patig, Martin; Ashman, Keith; Zepf, Stephen; Freeman, Kenneth

Description

We present a study of the globular cluster systems of two edge-on spiral galaxies, NGC 4565 and NGC 5907, from WFPC2 images in the F450W and F814W filters. The globular cluster systems of both galaxies appear to be similar to the Galactic globular cluster system. In particular, we derive total numbers of globular clusters of NGC(4565) = 204 ± 38+87-53 and NGC(5907) = 170 ± 41+47-72 (where the first are statistical, the second potential systematic errors) for NGC 4565 and NGC 5907, respectively....[Show more]
