Abstract

In this study, two lenticular galaxies (NGC 2577, NGC 4310) have been chosen to study their morphological and photometric properties, by using The [1]IRAF ISOPHOTE ELLIPSE task with griz-Filters. Observations are obtained from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) which are reach now to the Data Release (DR14). The data reduction of all images (bias and flat field) have been done by SDSS pipeline. The surface photometric investigations were performed like the total magnitude, together with isophotal contour maps, Surface brightness profiles and a bulge/disk decomposition of the images of the galaxies, although the disk position angle, ellipticity and inclination of the galaxies have been done.

 

[1] IRAF is distributed by the National Optical Astronomy Observatories, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Inc., under cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
