J/ApJ/532/308   Hot Horizontal Branch Stars in the Core of M32 (Brown+ 2000)

Detection and Photometry of Hot Horizontal Branch Stars in the Core of M32 Brown T.M., Bowers C.W., Kimble R.A., Sweigart A.V., Ferguson H.C. <Astrophys. J. 532, 308 (2000)> =2000ApJ...532..308B
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, ultraviolet Keywords: galaxies: abundances - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: stellar content - stars: evolution - ultraviolet: galaxies - ultraviolet: stars Description: File table1.dat contains the STIS near-UV photometry for the hot stars in the core of M32. The catalog includes 8021 stars, and gives position in the STIS image, magnitude, error, region of the image, RA (J2000), and Dec (J2000). The photometry was performed in six distinct regions of the image because of changes in the point spread function across the image. Note that the relative astrometry is quite accurate (tenths of a 0.025 arcsec STIS pixel), but the absolute astrometry is subject to a 1-2 arcsec uncertainty (associated with the position of the guide stars). Three stars were marked with a footnote in the published catalog, because they are associated with planetary nebulae in our field; they are at the following positions (x,y): (354.949, 821.325), (717.148, 669.210), and (994.924, 355.956).
