NED Abstract

Copyright by American Institute of Physics. 1997AstL...23..373S Photometric Distance to the Galaxy NGC 6946 and Its Companion M. E. Sharina, I. D. Karachentsev, and N. A. Tikhonov Special Astrophysical Observatory, Russian Academy of Sciences, pos. Nizhnii Arkhyz, Stavropolskii Krai, 357147 Russia Received February 19, 1996; in final form, February 12, 1997 Abstract-The results of photometric observations of the brightest stars in the spiral galaxy NGC 6946 and its irregular dwarf companion UGC 11583, which was resolved into stars for the first time, are presented. For NGC 6946, the distance modulus was estimated from blue and red stars to be, respectively, 28.72^m^ and 29.08^m^ for the absorption A_B_ = 1.93^m^. The same estimates of the distance modulus for the companion are 29.03^m^ and 29.24^m^. The galaxies form a bound system which is located in the middle of Tully's "Local void".
