Abstract (from CDS):
The Large Binocular Cameras (LBC) are two twin wide field cameras (FOV ∼23'x25') mounted at the prime foci of the 8.4m Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). We performed a weak lensing analysis of the z=0.288 cluster Abell 611 on g-band data obtained by the blue-optimized LBC in order to estimate the cluster mass. Owing to the complexity of the PSF of LBC, we decided to use two different approaches, KSB and shapelets, to measure the shape of background galaxies and to derive the shear signal produced by the cluster. Then we estimated the cluster mass with both aperture densitometry and parametric model fits. The combination of the large aperture of the telescope and the wide field of view allowed us to map a region well beyond the expected virial radius of the cluster and to get a high surface density for background galaxies (23 galaxies/arcmin2). This made it possible to estimate an accurate mass for Abell 611. We find that the mass within 1.5 Mpc is (8±3)x1014M☉ from the aperture mass technique and (5±1)x1014M☉ using the model fitting by an NFW mass density profile for both shapelet and KSB methods. This analysis demonstrates that LBC is a powerful instrument for weak gravitational lensing studies.

(acronym) Object type linked to the acronym according to the original reference
() Anterior to 2007, before we can link the objet type to a reference, or given by the CDS team in some particular cases
Other object types:
Syntax of coordinates is : "ra dec (wtype) [error ellipse] quality bibcode" :
ra dec : right ascension and declination (unit and frame defined according to your Output Options)
Grey values are increasing the original precision due to the computation of frame transformations
(wtype) : wavelength class for the origin of the coordinates (Rad, mm, IR, Optical, UV, Xray, Gam)
[error ellipse] : coordinates error major axis, minor axis (in mas at defined epoch in the original catalogue),
position angle (in degrees North celestial pole to East)
