Jet directions in Seyfert galaxies: b and I imaging data.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present the results of broadband B and I imaging observations for a sample of 88 Seyfert galaxies (29 Seyfert 1s and 59 Seyfert 2s), selected from a mostly isotropic property, the flux at 60 µm. We also present the B and I imaging results for an additional sample of 20 Seyfert galaxies (7 Seyfert 1s and 13 Seyfert 2s), selected from the literature and known to have extended radio emission. The I-band images are fitted with ellipses to determine the position angle and ellipticity of the host galaxy major axis. This information will be used in a future paper, combined with information from radio observations, to study the orientation of radio jets relative to the planes of their host galaxies. Here we present surface brightness profiles and magnitudes in the B and I bands, as well as mean ellipticities and major axis position angles.
