The photometry in this catalogue was carried out using
circular apertures of 3 arc sec diameter,
as described by
Phillips et al. (1997). These will present small differences
( ~ 0.12 mag, rms) relative to published values
for the sample of 51 compact galaxies that were analysed by
Phillips et al. (1997) and Guzmán et al. (1997).
This is because for the papers, the I814 magnitudes
were recalculated using elliptical apertures
to 8 arc sec . The differences should only
be significant in the case of galaxies with larger apparent
sizes or with elongated shapes.
explain how the V-I
colours in the catalogue were calculated. See also the web page
astrometric solution which was written
by Lowenthal, Guzmán and Gallego.
In the downloadable table, the 103 DEEP team redshifts in the Flanking Fields have been included. Stars that were spectroscopically confirmed by our own observations have z = 0, while unmeasured quantities have been assigned INDEF values.
