J/A+A/459/679       RB photometry of LSBG in Coma            (Adami+, 2006)

A deep wide survey of faint low surface brightness galaxies in the direction of the Coma cluster of galaxies. Adami C., Scheidegger R., Ulmer M., Durret F., Mazure A., West M.J., Conselice C.J., Gregg M., Kasun S., Pello R., Picat J.P. <Astron. Astrophys., 459, 679-692 (2006)> =2006A&A...459..679A
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Galaxies, photometry Keywords: galaxies: clusters: individual: Coma Abstract: We report on a search for faint (R total magnitude fainter than 21) and low surface brightness galaxies (R central surface brightness fainter than ∼24) (fLSBs) in a 0.72x0.82deg2 area centered on the Coma cluster. We analyzed deep B and R band CCD imaging obtained using the CFH12K camera at CFHT and found 735 fLSBs. The total B magnitudes, at the Coma cluster redshift, range from -13 to -9 with B central surface brightness as faint as 27mag/arcsec2. Description: The observations are described in Adami et al. (2006, Cat. J/A+A/451/1159 and we only reproduce the salient points in this section. The Coma field was observed in April 1999 and April 2000 with the Canada-France-Hawaii 3.6m telescope using the CFH12K camera. Images were acquired using B, V, R and I Johnson-like filters.
