VII/115     Surface Photometry of ESO-Uppsala Galaxies (Lauberts+ 1989)

The Surface Photometry Catalogue of the ESO-Uppsala Galaxies Lauberts A., Valentijn E.A. <The Surface Photometry Catalogue of the ESO/Uppsala Galaxies, European Southern Observatory (1989)> =2006yCat.7115....0L
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Photometry, surface ; Fundamental catalog ; Morphology Description: The 15467 southern galaxies in this catalog were scanned from 407 blue and 407 red original ESO-Schmidt plates using a PDS microdensitometer. The galaxies were selected from the ESO-Uppsala Catalogue (VII/34). The original selection criterion was a minimum visual angular diameter of 1arcmin. The plates were calibrated using a catalog of photo- electric standards of 1700 standard galaxies transformed to a photometric standard system (Cousins) created by the authors. The result is a catalog acquired in a homogeneous fashion for all types of galaxies in various environments. The extracted parameters include radial surface brightness profiles, magnitudes at several isophotal levels, colors, color gradients, effective radius parameters, structural parameters such as axial ratios, position angles, and profile gradients. The full version of the catalog, made of 190 columns, is available as the file "" in FITS table format. The ascii file "esolv1.dat" contains a subset of these columns which includes those parameters listed in the printed book version. Detailed discussion of the catalog creation is given in the published book version (ISBN 3-923524-31-5) File Summary:

Note (1): TType is a number corresponding to classifications: ------------------------------------- TType Hubble Corwin ESO-Uppsala ------------------------------------- -5 E E E -4 cD -3 E-S0 L- E-S0 -2 S0 L S0 -1 L+ 0 S0/a S0 S0-a 1 Sa S1 Sa 2 Sa-b S2 Sa-b 3 Sb S3 Sb 4 Sb-c S4 Sb-c 5 S5 S... 6 Sc S6 Sc, Sc-d 7 S7 S../Irr 8 Sc-Irr S8 Sd 9 S9 10 Irr I Irr 11 unknown ------------------------------------- Note (2): the ESO-LV number is made of 3 digits for the field name, 3 digits for the running number in the field, and a last digit for companions. Note (3): a positive number indicates the number of radii suspected to contain saturated central parts; negative values indicate the number of radii where photographic data have been replaced with photoelectric measurements. Note (4): sample parameter is the following: 0 = not complete sample; 1 = ESO-Uppsala catalog of objects with diameter>1' 2 = Vmax subsample of 1 (see section 9) Note (5): de Vaucouleurs law assumes the fits in surface brightness I = Io exp(-(r/α)N) The exponent N is contained in the catalog; the FITS version includes also the scale length α
