ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, nearby ; Clusters, globular ; Photometry, HST Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: individual (NGC 5866) - globular clusters: general Abstract: We perform a detailed study of the globular cluster (GC) system in the galaxy NGC 5866 based on F435W, F555W, and F625W (∼B, V, and R) Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys images. Adopting color, size, and shape selection criteria, the final list of GC candidates comprises 109 objects, with small estimated contamination from background galaxies, and foreground stars. Description: The ACS WFC observations of NGC 5866 were taken in 2006 February with the F435W, F555W, and F625W filters (∼B, V, and R). The total exposure times for the three different passbands were 3900, 2800, and 2200s, respectively. File Summary:
