Galaxy Photometry


The aims of this project are as following:

  1. Reduce multi-band (BVR) CCD data of the M 51, M 63, M 106 (NGC 4258) and NGC 4725 galaxies obtained via 0.8-m (30-inch) telescope at the McDonald Observatory (MDO) in Austin, TX.
  2. Prepare scientific and color-combined frames.
  3. Discuss differences and similarities of galactic features appearing in the images that depend on the wavelength and the galaxy type.
  4. Conduct preliminary surface photometry of galaxies.
