2000A&A...361...68M VLT deep I-band surface brightness fluctuations of IC 4296. MEI S., SILVA D., QUINN P.J. Received 18 April 2000/Accepted 5 July 2000 Abstract: From theoretical predictions, the introduction of 8-m class telescopes permits one to extend Surface Brightness Fluctuations measurements from the ground to =~7000 km/s, with a precision that is comparable to current space-based measurements. We have measured I-band SBF in IC 4296 in Abell 3565 at cz~3630km/s with the ESO Very Large Telescope. Adopting the Tonry et al. (2000) calibration for I-band SBF we determined a distance modulus of (<I>_o,k_-<M>_I_)=33.44+/-0.17mag corresponding to a galaxy distance of 49+/-4 Mpc. This result is consistent with the HST observation from Lauer et al. (1998): (<I>_F814_- <M>_F814_)=33.47+/-0.13mag. Key words: galaxies: distances and redshifts-galaxies: individual: IC 4296
