Testing the universality of the (U-V) color-magnitude relations for nearby clusters of galaxies. McIntosh D.H., Zabludoff A.I., Rix H.-W., Caldwell N. <Astrophys. J., 619, 193-217 (2005)> =2005ApJ...619..193M
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Galaxies, photometry Keywords: cosmology: observations - galaxies: clusters: general - galaxies: clusters: individual (A85, A496, A754) - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: photometry Abstract: We present a detailed (U-V) color-magnitude relation (CMR) analysis for three local (z<0.06) clusters of galaxies. From square-degree imaging of the Abell clusters A85, A496, and A754, we select 637 galaxies down to L∼0.1LV* with spectroscopic membership, which minimizes uncertain field contamination corrections. Description: We observed clusters A85, A496, and A754 during two runs at the Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO) 0.9m Telescope with the NOAO Mosaic Wide-Field Imager. We used the engineering-grade Mosaic for the V data in 1997 November and the science-grade Mosaic with thinned CCDs for the U band in 2000 January. File Summary:

Note (1): Based on cluster designation and J2000.0 celestial coordinates. [MZR2005] A85.JHHMMSSss+DDMMSS, [MZR2005] A496.JHHMMSSss+DDMMSS and [MZR2005] A754.JHHMMSSss+DDMMSS in Simbad. Note (2): Rest-frame (U-V) colors measured within three circular apertures: fixed size corresponding to 3.34h-1kpc at distance to parent cluster and variable sizes corresponding to half-light and twice half-light galaxy diameters. The photometry is calibrated to Johnson U and V magnitudes on the Landolt (1992, Cat. II/183) system. Note (3): From Schlegel, Finkbeiner, & Davis (1998ApJ...500..525S).
