We present a wide field survey of satellite galaxies in M106 (NGC 4258) covering a 1:7 � × 2 � field around M106 using Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope/MegaCam. We find 16 satellite galaxy candidates of M106. Eight of these galaxies are found to be dwarf galaxies that are much smaller and fainter than the remaining galaxies. Four of these galaxies are new findings. Surface brightness profiles of 15 out of 16 satellite galaxies can be represented well by an exponential disk profile with varying… Expand
A SURVEY OF SATELLITE GALAXIES AROUND NGC 4258
We conduct a survey of satellite galaxies around the nearby spiral NGC 4258 by combining spectroscopic observations from the Apache Point Observatory 3.5 m telescope with Sloan Digital Sky SurveyExpand
New low surface brightness dwarf galaxies detected around nearby spirals
We conduct a survey of low surface brightness (LSB) satellite galaxies around the Local Volume massive spirals using long exposures with small amateur telescopes. We identified 27 low and very lowExpand

Dwarf Galaxies in the Local Volume
We review observational data about a sample of Local Volume objects containing about 1000 galaxies within 11 Mpc of the Milky Way. Dwarf galaxies with stellar masses M∗/Mʘ < 9 dexmake up 5/6 of theExpand
Forty-Seven Milky Way-Sized, Extremely Diffuse Galaxies in the Coma Cluster
We report the discovery of 47 low surface brightness objects in deep images of a 3 x 3 degree field centered on the Coma cluster, obtained with the Dragonfly Telephoto Array. The objects have centralExpand
A Catalog of Visually Classified Galaxies in the Local (z ∼ 0.01) Universe
The morphological types of 5836 galaxies were classified by a visual inspection of color images using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 to produce a morphology catalog of a representativeExpand
The Red and Featureless Outer Disks of Nearby Spiral Galaxies
We present results from deep, wide-field surface photometry of three nearby (D=4--7 Mpc) spiral galaxies: M94 (NGC 4736), M64 (NGC 4826), and M106 (NGC 4258). Our imaging reaches limiting surfaceExpand
