J/AJ/101/1561   Isophotometry of ellipticals in Abell clusters    (Porter+ 1991)

CCD observations of Abell clusters. V. Isophotometry of 175 brightest elliptical galaxies in Abell clusters PORTER A.C., SCHNEIDER D.P., HOESSEL J.G. <Astron. J. 101, 1561 (1991)> =1991AJ....101.1561P
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy; Photometry, CCD Keywords: galaxies: clustering - galaxies: isophotometry - galaxies: elliptical Notes: * The original file is in TeX form with a macro file. Conversion from TeX to ASCII form is made by H.Andernach. * The number of entries of table1 is 176 because a cD galaxy NGC4874 is included after the brightest cluster elliptical of A1656 (see paper p1576). * "BCE" stands for "brightest cluster elliptical(s)".

1 A1 --- NGC [N] 'N' denotes that the following number is of NGC; in other case (' '), is of Abell 2- 5 I4 --- ABELL [0,] Abell cluster number * If NGC='N' then NGC number 7- 13 F7.4 --- Z redshift of the BCE 16- 19 F4.2 arcsec SEEING [0,] FWHM of the seeing in the CCD image 22- 25 F4.2 --- E4 [0,1]? ellipticity for semimajor axis of 4 kpc * Blank space means the BCE was not observed at that radius, or the isophoto was discarded (see paper p1576r) 28- 31 F4.2 --- E16 [0,1]? above of 16 kpc 34- 37 F4.2 --- E64 [0,1]? above of 64 kpc 40- 42 I3 deg PA4 [0,360[? position angle of the major-axis of 4 kpc (see E4 above) 45- 47 I3 deg PA16 [-8/352]? above of 16 kpc 50- 52 I3 deg PA64 [0,360[? above of 64 kpc 54- 57 A4 --- decr_E [cpxe"~<>0 ] if ellipticity decreasing outwards anywhere in its profile: e" = 2nd outward derivative of E, ∼ = nearly equal, cpx = complex 59 A1 --- const_E [Y] 'Y' denotes constant ellipticity 61 A1 --- TWIST [Y] 'Y' denotes significant isophoto twisting 63 A1 --- ASYM [Y] 'Y' denotes significant asymmetry
