1991ApJS...76.1067d SURFACE PHOTOMETRY OF A SAMPLE OF ELLIPTICAL AND S0 GALAXIES R. R. DE CARVALHO, S. DJORGOVSKI, AND L. N. DA COSTA Received 1990 June 29; accepted 1990 September 25 ABSTRACT We present the results of CCD surface photometry in the B and R bands of 38 early-type galaxies, including 26 ellipticals, three E/ S0's, and nine S0's. Most of the objects (23) are in the Fornax Cluster, and the remaining ones (15) belong to various smaller groups and the general field. Many of the galaxies covered have no previously published photometry, or only very limited aperture measurements. Our surface brightness profiles typically extend out to ~70" in radius, or down to a surface brightness of {mu}_B_~24.6 mag arcsec^-2^. Detailed comparisons with previously published work, and internal and external error estimates for all quantities, are provided. We point out some serious systematic discrepancies in the older aperture photometry of some of the galaxies in the present sample. The complete surface photometry data set is made available in computer-readable form. Subject headings: galaxies: general - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: structure
