The absence of extratidal structure in the Sculptor dwarf spheroidal galaxy. Coleman M.G., Da Costa G.S., Bland-hawthorn J. <Astron. J., 130, 1065-1082 (2005)> =2005AJ....130.1065C
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, VRI ; Radial velocities ; Abundances, [Fe/H] Keywords: galaxies: dwarf - galaxies: individual (Sculptor) - galaxies: interactions - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: stellar content - Galaxy: halo - Local Group Abstract: The results of a wide-field survey of the Sculptor dwarf spheroidal galaxy are presented. Our aims were to obtain an accurate map of the outer structure of Sculptor and to determine the level of interaction between this system and the Galaxy. Photometry was obtained in two colors down to the magnitude limits of V=20 and I=19, covering a 3.1°x3.1° area centered on Sculptor. Description: Images of the Sculptor region were obtained at the Siding Spring Observatory 1m telescope equipped with the Wide Field Imager (WFI). Sixteen fields were observed in two filters (V and I), thereby covering a 3.1°x3.1° area on the sky using a 4x4 mosaic of WFI fields. The 2dF instrument at the prime focus of the Anglo-Australian Telescope allows the simultaneous spectroscopy of up to 400 targets over a field of view 2° in diameter. File Summary:
