Infrared observations of galaxies in the local universe. II. 391 calibrated images with photometric and structural measurements.


Abstract (from CDS):

This paper presents empirical results from a deep imaging survey of galaxies in the local universe at the J and Kswavelengths. Three hundred ninety-one images have been obtained and calibrated using the same camera and filter set with the Steward Observatory 1.6 m Kuiper Telescope on Mount Bigelow and the 2.3 m Bok Telescope on Kitt Peak. The limiting magnitude is typically 22 mag/arcsec at J and 21 mag/arcsec at K_s_. The central surface brightness, apparent magnitudes, sizes, scale lengths, and inclinations are tabulated from measurements made using these data. The purpose of this paper is to provide basic near-infrared data on a variety of galaxy types.
