2006ApJS..164..307M Hubble Space Telescope Near-Infrared Snapshot Survey of 3CR Radio Source Counterparts at Low Redshift Juan P. Madrid, Marco Chiaberge, David Floyd, William B. Sparks, Duccio Macchetto, George K. Miley, David Axon, Alessandro Capetti, Christopher P. O'Dea, Stefi Baum, Eric Perlman, and Alice Quillen Abstract. We present newly acquired images of the near-infrared counterpart of 3CR radio sources. All the sources were selected to have a redshift of less than 0.3 to allow us to obtain the highest spatial resolution. The observations were carried out as a snapshot program using the Near-Infrared Camera and Multiobject Spectrograph (NICMOS) on-board the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). In this paper we describe 69 radio galaxies observed for the first time with NICMOS during HST cycle 13. All the objects presented here are elliptical galaxies. However, each of them has unique characteristics such as close companions, dust lanes, unresolved nuclei, arclike features, globular clusters, and jets clearly visible from the images or with basic galaxy subtraction. Key words: Galaxies: Active, Galaxies: Elliptical and Lenticular, cD, Galaxies: Jets, Infrared: Galaxies
