J/A+A/441/451       UBVRIJHK photometry of E-type galaxies   (Michard+, 2005)

Near infra-red and optical colour gradients in E-type galaxies. Inferences on dust content. Michard R. <Astron. Astrophys., 441, 451-464 (2005)> =2005A&A...441..451M
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Galaxies, photometry ; Photometry, UBVRIJKLMNH ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: galaxies: elliptical and lenticulars, CD - galaxies: photometry Abstract: Colour gradients are considered for a sample of circa 50 E-type galaxies in the Local Supercluster. The new data includes isophotal colour profiles in J-H, J-K, V-J and V-K, measured using 2MASS frames mostly from the Large Galaxies Atla s, V frames from previous work and V profiles from the literature. This is supplemented by U-B, B-V, B-R, V-I colour gradients obtained anew from published photometric data. The here available file gives our zero-point colours at re/2 and the measured gradients for 54 objects, but for missing data. File Summary:

Note (1): Galaxy types and subtypes, central velocity dispersion, IRAs fluxes and the S2 index are repeated from Michard & Prugniel, 2004, Cat. J/A+A/423/833 Note (2): U-B, B-V, B-R and V-I colours and gradients are taken and/or remeasured from several sources, hence the derivation of errors for each object. Note (3): V-J, V-K, J-H, J-K colours and gradients are new measurements deemed homogeneous: probable errors should be nearly the same for all objects. Errors on zero-point colours: 0.025 in V-J, V-K, 0.013 in J-H, J-K Errors on gradients: 0.032 in dV-J, 0.035 in dV-K, 0.017 in dJ-H, dJ-K
