Photometry in the B, V and R broad-bands, and in the R* medium-band centered around Hα with varying apertures was carried out for about 1200 targets, which are related to about 300 compact objects detected in the survey. The results for 101 prominent compact objects are presented as photometric catalogues and morphological atlases, separately for samples with and without strong Hα emission. Description: We used the M31 frames that were secured during the verification period of Suprime-Cam in 1999 July. File Summary:
