J/ApJ/690/512  LMXBs and globulars in early-type galaxies. II.  (Humphrey, 2009)

Low-mass X-ray binaries and globular clusters in early-type galaxies. II. Globular cluster candidates and their mass-metallicity relation. Humphrey P.J. <Astrophys. J., 690, 512-525 (2009)> =2009ApJ...690..512H
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, HST ; Galaxies, optical ; Clusters, globular Keywords: galaxies: distances and redshifts - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: general - galaxies: star clusters Abstract: We present an astrometry and photometry catalogue of globular cluster (GC) candidates detected with the Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in a sample of 19 early-type galaxies, appropriate for comparison with the low-mass X-ray binary populations observed with Chandra. In a companion paper (Cat. J/ApJ/689/983), we present the Chandra data and investigate the relation between these populations. We demonstrate that, although there is little evidence of a color-magnitude correlation for the GCs, after estimating mass and metallicity from the photometry under the assumption of a single-age simple stellar population, there is a significant positive correlation between mass and metallicity. Description: The GC populations in 19 early-type galaxies was observed with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), between 1994 and 1997, except for NGC 4472 which was observed in 2001 April. Table 1 lists the galaxies and the details of the archival observations. File Summary:

Note (1): Taken from Tonry et al. (2001ApJ...546..681T), corrected by -0.16mag to account for revisions to the Cepheid zero-point (e.g., Jensen et al. 2003ApJ...583..712J), except that of NGC 5018, which was taken from Faber et al. (1989, Cat. VII/176). Note (2): Total, extrapolated Ks-band luminosities (LKs) were taken from the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS; Jarrett, 2000PASP..112.1008J), adopting MK=3.41. The zero-point was chosen for consistency with the stellar population models of Maraston (2005MNRAS.362..799M; Section 3.2) and assuming the K-band and Ks-band magnitudes do not differ significantly (e.g., Carpenter, 2001AJ....121.2851C).
