Aims. We present observations with the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the Hubble Space Telescope of the nearby dwarf spheroidal galaxy KKH 22 = LEDA 2807114 in the vicinity of the massive spiral galaxy IC 342. Methods. We derived its distance of 3.12 ± 0.19 Mpc using the tip of red giant branch (TRGB) method. We also used the 6 m BTA spectroscopy to measure a heliocentric radial velocity of the globular cluster in KKH 22 to be +30 ± 10 km s−1. Results. The dSph galaxy KKH 22 has the V-band…

The M101 Satellite Luminosity Function and the Halo–Halo Scatter among Local Volume Hosts
We have obtained deep Hubble Space Telescope (HST) imaging of 19 dwarf galaxy candidates in the vicinity of M101. Advanced Camera for Surveys HST photometry for 2 of these objects showed resolved
Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies in the M101 group and behind it.
We use images from the Hubble Space Telescope to determine the distances to a dozen objects with low surface brightness recently observed around the bright nearby spiral M101. Only two dwarf
We report the discovery of a new faint dwarf galaxy, which we dub Scl-MM-Dw1, at a projected distance of ~65 kpc from the spiral galaxy NGC 253. The discovery results from the Panoramic Imaging
A tidally disrupting dwarf galaxy in the halo of NGC 253
We report the discovery of Scl-MM-Dw2, a new dwarf galaxy at a projected separation of $\sim$50 kpc from NGC 253, as part of the PISCeS (Panoramic Imaging Survey of Centaurus and Sculptor) project.
HI observations of nearby galaxies - IV. More dwarf galaxies in the southern sky
We carried out a systematic search for nearby dwarf galaxies in the northern sky based on POSS-II film copies. As a result we present a list of 101 nearby dwarf galaxy candidates mainly of low
Structure in the Neutral Hydrogen Disk of the Spiral Galaxy IC 342
We present 38''resolution Very Large Array 21 cm continuum and H I line emission observations of the spiral galaxy IC 342, at an adopted distance of 2 Mpc. Kinematic evidence exists for a m = 2
The Dragonfly Nearby Galaxies Survey. III. The Luminosity Function of the M101 Group
We obtained follow-up HST observations of the seven low surface brightness galaxies discovered with the Dragonfly Telephoto Array in the field of the massive spiral galaxy M101. Out of the seven
We present an all-sky catalog of 869 nearby galaxies having individual distance estimates within 11 Mpc or corrected radial velocities V LG < 600 km s–1. The catalog is a renewed and expanded version
Tip of the Red Giant Branch Distances. II. Zero-Point Calibration
The luminosity of the tip of the red giant branch (TRGB) provides an excellent measure of galaxy distances and is easily determined in the resolved images of nearby galaxies observed with Hubble
Peculiar Velocities of Galaxies Just Beyond the Local Group
The Milky Way lies in a thin plane, the Local Sheet, a part of a wall bounding the Local Void lying toward the north supergalactic pole. Galaxies with accurate distances both above and below this
