2009ApJS..184..152B Deep Optical Photometry of Six Fields in the Andromeda Galaxy Brown, Thomas M.; Smith, Ed; Ferguson, Henry C.; Guhathakurta, Puragra; Kalirai, Jason S.; Kimble, Randy A.; Renzini, Alvio; Rich, R. Michael; Sweigart, Allen V.; Vanden Berg, Don A. Abstract. Using the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the Hubble Space Telescope, we have obtained deep optical images reaching well below the oldest main-sequence turnoff in six fields of the Andromeda Galaxy. The fields fall at four positions on the southeast minor axis, one position in the giant stellar stream, and one position on the northeast major axis. These data were obtained as part of three large observing programs designed to probe the star formation history of the stellar population in various structures of the galaxy. In this paper, we present the images, catalogs, and artificial star tests for these observing programs as a supplement to the analyses published previously. These high-level science products are also archived at the Multimission Archive at the Space Telescope Science Institute. Key words: galaxies: evolution, galaxies: individual: M31, galaxies: stellar content
