A study is made of stellar and galaxy colors using a spectrophotometric synethesis technique. We show that use of good color response functions and a modern determination of the spectroscopic energy distribution for a alpha-Lyr gives synthetic colors in a good agreement with photometric observations to about 0.05 mag. The synthetic method then is applied to sutdy galaxy colors using the spectrophotometric atlas of Kennicutt (1992), and a comparison is made with observed galaxy colors. The K… CONTINUE READING
