Optical (VRI) Photometry in the Field of the Galaxy Cluster AC118 at z=0.31. Busarello G., Merluzzi P., La Barbera F., Massarotti M., Capaccioli M. <Astron. Astrophys. 389, 787 (2002)> =2002A&A...389..787B (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Galaxies, photometry ; Photometry, CCD Keywords: galaxies: clusters: individual: AC118 - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: fundamental parameters (magnitudes, colors) - galaxies: luminosity function Abstract: We present new photometric V-, R- and I-band data for the rich galaxy cluster AC118 at z=0.31. The new photometry covers an area of 8.6x8.6arcmin2, corresponding to 2.9x2.9Mpc2 (H0=50km/s/Mpc, q0=0.5 and Lambda=0). The data have been collected for a project aimed at studying galaxy evolution through the color-magnitude relation and the fundamental plane. We provide a catalogue including all the sources (N=1206) detected in the cluster field. The galaxy sample is complete to V=22.8mag (N_gal=574), R=22.3mag (N_gal=649) and I=20.8mag (N_gal=419). We give aperture magnitudes within a fixed aperture of 4.4arcsec and Kron magnitudes. We also give photometric redshifts for 459 sources for which additional U- and K-band photometry is available. We derive and discuss the V- and R-band luminosity functions. The catalogue is intended as a tool for studies in galaxy evolution.

Note (1): Magnitudes are corrected for galactic extinction according to Schlegel et al. (1998ApJ...500..525S) Note (2): When the Kron radius is smaller than 3.5 pixels, an aperture with this diameter, that corresponds to about 1", is adopted Note (3): We identify as galaxies the objects with stellar index value smaller than 0.9. When available for more than one image, we report the value relative to the image with the best seeing. Note (4): The 68% percentile intervals for photometric redshifts are calculated as explicated in Sect. 4.3 of the paper.
