J/ApJ/648/375       Araucaria: NGC 3109 Cepheids JK phot.     (Soszynski+, 2006)

The Araucaria Project: distance to the Local Group galaxy NGC 3109 from near-infrared photometry of Cepheids. Soszynski I., Gieren W., Pietrzynski G., Bresolin F., Kudritzki R.-P., Storm J. <Astrophys. J., 648, 375-382 (2006)> =2006ApJ...648..375S
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: Cepheids - galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: individual (NGC 3109) - infrared: stars Abstract: We present near-infrared J- and K-band photometry of 77 Cepheid variables in the Local Group galaxy NGC 3109. Combining our data with the previously published optical V- and I-band photometry of Cepheids in this galaxy, we derive an accurate distance and interstellar reddening toward NGC 3109. Description: We used deep J- and K-band images recorded with the 8.2m ESO Very Large Telescope equipped with the Infrared Spectrometer and Array Camera (ISAAC). Obverations were made on six nights between 2004 January 31 and February 19. File Summary:
