In this work we study the spectral properties (3600-6800 A) of the nuclear region of early-type galaxies at low (|b| < 25 ◦ ), intermediate (including surroundings of the Magellanic Clouds) and high (South Polar Cap) Galactic latitudes. We determine the E(B − V) reddening values of the galaxies by matching their continuum distribution with respect to those of reddening-free spectral galaxy templates with similar stellar populations. We also compare the spectroscopic reddening value of each… CONTINUE READING
