J/AJ/127/24         Globular clusters in 4 cD galaxies       (Jordan+, 2004)

Hubble Space Telescope observations of cD galaxies and their globular cluster systems. Jordan A., Cote P., West M.J., Marzke R.O., Minniti D., Rejkuba M. <Astron. J., 127, 24-47 (2004)> =2004AJ....127...24J
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Clusters, globular ; Photometry Keywords: galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: individual (NGC 541, NGC 2832, NGC 4839, NGC 7768) - galaxies: star clusters - galaxies: structure Abstract: We have used WFPC2 on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to obtain F450W and F814W images of four cD galaxies (NGC 541 in Abell 194, NGC 2832 in Abell 779, NGC 4839 in Abell 1656, and NGC 7768 in Abell 2666) in the range 5400km/s<cz<8100km/s. For NGC 541, the HST data are supplemented by ground-based B and I images obtained with FORS1 on the Very Large Telescope. File Summary:
