1991ApJ...382..382P INFRARED IMAGES, VIRGO SPIRALS, AND THE TULLY-FISHER LAW R. F. PELETIER AND S. P. WILLNER Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. 60 Garden Street, Cambridge. MA 02138 Received 1990 December 10; accepted 1991 June 4 ABSTRACT For a complete (but magnitude-limited) sample of Virgo Cluster spiral galaxies, we present 1.65 micron photometry derived from images. Both galaxy inclinations and H-magnitudes are derived from the new data. The new photometry agrees with previous measurements. The infrared inclinations from the present data are usable for galaxies having inclinations greater than 45^deg^, but deeper images would be needed for galaxies more face-on than this. The inclinations are the major observational uncertainty in the Tully-Fisher relation, but the relation in Virgo must have an intrinsic dispersion amounting to ~0.4 mag. Sample selection is critical for determination of the intrinsic dispersion. Subject headings: galaxies: clustering - galaxies: distances - infrared: sources - photometry
