6-m telescope observations of three dwarf spheroidal galaxies with very low surface brightness

Dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs) are mostly investigated in the Local Group. DSphs are difficult targets for observations because of their small size and very low surface brightness. Here we measure spectroscopic and photometric parameters of three candidates for isolated dSphs, KKH 65 = BTS23, KK 180, and KK 227, outside the Local Group. The galaxies are found to be of low...

Cosmic Flows: Green Bank Telescope and Parkes H i observations

The neutral hydrogen properties of 1822 galaxies are being studied with the Green Bank 100-m and the Parkes 64-m telescopes as part of the ‘Cosmic Flows’ programme. Observed parameters include systemic velocities, profile linewidths and integrated fluxes. The linewidth information can be combined with the optical and infrared photometry to obtain distances. The 1822 H i...

The Hubble flow around the Local Group

We use updated data on distances and velocities of galaxies in the proximity of the Local Group (LG) in order to establish properties of the local Hubble flow. For 30 neighbouring galaxies with distances 0.7 < DLG < 3.0 Mpc, the local flow is characterized by the Hubble parameter Hloc= (78 ± 2) km s−1 Mpc−1, the mean-square peculiar velocity σv= 25 km s−1, corrected for errors of...

Hubble Space Telescope imaging of globular cluster candidates in low surface brightness dwarf galaxies

Fifty-seven nearby low surface brightness dwarf galaxies () were searched for globular cluster candidates (GCCs) using Hubble Space Telescope WFPC2 imaging in V and I. The sample consists of 18 dwarf spheroidal (dSph), 36 irregular (dIrr), and 3 “transition” type (dIrr/dSph) galaxies with angular sizes less than 3.7 kpc situated at distances  Mpc in the field and in the nearby...

Photometric properties of the Local Volume dwarf galaxies*

We present surface photometry and metallicity measurements for 104 nearby dwarf galaxies imaged with the Advanced Camera for Surveys and Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. In addition, we carried out photometry for 26 galaxies of the sample and for Sextans B on images of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Our sample comprises dwarf spheroidal...
