VizieR Online Data Catalog: Galaxy candidates in the Hubble Frontier Fields (Laporte+, 2016) Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract The Frontier Field (FF) project is carried out using HST Director's Discretionary Time and will use 840 orbits during Cycles 21, 22, and 23 with six strong-lensing galaxy clusters as the main targets. For each cluster, the final data set is composed of three images from ACS/HST (F435W, F606W, and F814W) and four images from WFC3/HST (F105W, F125W, F140W, and F160W) reaching depths of~ 29 mag at 5sigma in a 0.4" diameter aperture. In this study, we used the final data release on MACS J0717. 5+ 3745 (z= 0.551, Ebeling et al. 2004ApJ... 609L.. 49E; Medezinski et al. 2013ApJ... 777... 43M) made public on 2015 April 1. This third cluster in the FF list has been observed by HST through several observing programs, mainly those related to CLASH (ID: 12103, PI: M. Postman) and the FFs (ID: 13498, PI: J. Lotz). We matched the HST data with deep Spitzer/IRAC images obtained …
