Star-forming galaxies in the Hercules cluster: Hα imaging of A2151. Cedres B., Iglesias-Paramo J., Vilchez J.M., Reverte D., Petropoulou V., Hernandez-Fernandez J. <Astron. J., 138, 873-888 (2009)> =2009AJ....138..873C

A total of 50 sources were detected in Hα, from which 41 were classified as secure members of the cluster and 2 as likely members based on spectroscopic and photometric redshift considerations. The remaining seven galaxies were classified as background contaminants and thus excluded from our study on the Hα properties of the cluster. Description: The data were obtained during two observational runs. The first one was from 2003 May 6 to 7 at the 256cm Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) located at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. The second run was during 2003 June 4 and 5 at the 420cm William Herschel Telescope (WHT), located also at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. File Summary:

Note (1): from the SDSS g" magnitudes, assuming a distance to A2151 of 158.3Mpc and an average correction of g"-B~-0.3mag (Fukugita et al., 1995PASP..107..945F) Note (2): Membership flag as follows: 0 = secure members for galaxies with spectroscopic radial velocity 1 = secure members from the photo-z criterion 2 = likely members from the photo-z criterion 3 = background galaxies Note (3): Galaxies with no available Hubble type are classified as "Comp" (compact).
