The sample, including about 300 objects, is complete down to H∼17mag, the exact value depending on the type of magnitude (isophotal, aperture, Kron) and the particular region studied. This is six magnitudes below the characteristic magnitude of galaxies, well into the dwarfs' regime at the distance of the Coma cluster. For each object (star or galaxy) we provide aperture magnitudes computed within five different apertures, the magnitude within the 22mag/arcsec2 isophote, the Kron magnitude and radius, magnitude errors, as well as the coordinates, the isophotal area, and a stellarity index. Photometric errors are 0.2mag at the completness limit. This sample is meant to be the zero-redshift reference for evolutionary studies of galaxies.

Note (1): Errors computed by Sextractor. Listed errors do not include photometric zero-point errors (see Sect. 3.7), those arising from the compositing, and implicitly assume a gaussian or poissonian error distribution. Note (2): "99.99" means that no measure is available (usually because the object is too small or too faint for its flux to be measured through a large aperture). Note (3): Kron magnitudes are computed by integrating the flux in an area 2.5 times larger than the Kron area, with a minimum aperture radius of 1.8 arcsec. Note (4): When Index ≲0.3, objects are identified as galaxies, whereas Index ≳0.7 (for 0404 and 0504) and Index ≳0.8 (for patch1) correspond to stars. The difference between fields is due to seeing conditions.
