We present our optical multicolor photometry for the nearby cluster of galaxies Abell 2255 with 13 intermediate filters in the BATC system. The spectral energy distributions (SEDs) in the optical band for more than 7000 sources are achieved down to V ~ 20 in a field of 58' x 58' centered on this rich cluster. Abell 2255 has been recently observed by the SDSS. A method of combining the SDSS photometric data in five broad bands and the BATC SEDs is then explored. The application of the technique…

Multicolor Photometry of the Merging Galaxy Cluster A2319: Dynamics and Star Formation Properties
Asymmetric X-ray emission and powerful cluster-scale radio halo indicate that A2319 is a merging cluster of galaxies. This paper presents our multicolor photometry for A2319 with 15 optical
Multicolor photometry of the galaxy cluster A98: substructures and star formation properties
An optical photometric observation with the Beijing-Arizona-Taiwan- Connecticut (BATC) multicolor system is carried out for A98 (z =0 .104), a galaxy cluster with two large enhancements in X-ray
Merging Galaxy Cluster A2255 in Mid-infrared
We present the mid-infrared (MIR) observation of a nearby galaxy cluster, A2255, by the AKARI space telescope. Using AKARI's continuous wavelength coverage between 3 and 24 μm and the wide field of
Search for gas bulk motions in eight nearby clusters of galaxies with Suzaku
To search for bulk motions of the intracluster medium, we analyzed the X-ray spectra taken with the Suzaku satellite and measured the Doppler shift of Fe-K line emission from eight nearby clusters of
Merging Cluster Collaboration: A Panchromatic Atlas of Radio Relic Mergers
Golovich et al. 2017b presents an optical imaging and spectroscopic survey of 29 radio relic merging galaxy clusters. In this paper, we study this survey to identify substructure and quantify the
Suzaku observations of the merging galaxy cluster Abell 2255: The northeast radio relic
We present the results of deep 140 ks Suzaku X-ray observations of the north-east (NE) radio relic of the merging galaxy cluster Abell 2255. The temperature structure of Abell 2255 is measured out to
The Beautiful Mess in Abell 2255
We present LOFAR observations of one of the most spectacular objects in the radio sky: Abell 2255. This is a nearby ($z = 0.0806$) merging galaxy cluster hosting one of the first radio halos ever


Astronomical data analysis from remote sites
The development of telescience methodologies for teledesign, teleoperation, and teleanalysis, and the possible verification of these concepts using the Extreme UV Explorer (EUVE) are discussed. The
