Abstract

Deep H and K ′ images, recorded with the ALTAIR adaptive optics system and NIRI imager on Gemini North, are used to probe the red stellar content in a field with a projected distance of 1 kpc above the disk plane of the starburst galaxy M82. The data have an angular resolution of 0.08 arcsec FWHM, and individual AGB and RGB stars are resolved. The AGB… (More)
