Structural parameters from the best-fitting Sersic r1/n bulge plus, where appropriate, exponential disk model, are tabulated here. This sample is complete down to a magnitude of R=17mag. By examining the recent compilation by Edwards et al. (2002ApJ...567..178E) of galaxy redshifts in the direction of Coma, we find that 163 of the 187 galaxies are Coma Cluster members and that the rest are foreground and background objects. For the Coma Cluster members, we have studied differences in the structural and kinematic properties between early- and late-type galaxies and between the dwarf and giant galaxies. Description: We have performed a quantitative morphological analysis of galaxies in the Coma Cluster, using a deep image taken in April of 2000 with the Wide-Field Camera (WFC) on the 2.5m Isaac Newton Telescope (INT) at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. The observations are described in detail in Marin-Franch & Aparicio (2002ApJ...568..174M). Here we outline the more relevant facts. The image was taken through a Sloan r-band filter, with a total exposure time of 3900 s (13x300s). The observations covered the inner 0.28deg2 of the central part of the cluster.
