  • We investigate the dispersion in the internal colours of faint spheroidals in the Hubble Deep Fields North and South. In high-redshift rapid-collapse scenarios, the dispersion in internal colours should be small at moderate redshift apart from a small metallicity induced reddening in the enriched cores. However, recently assembled spheroidals are likely to show non-homologous internal colours, at least until younger stellar populations become fully mixed. Here we find that a remarkably large… CONTINUE READING
