Cepheids have been observed in NGC 5236 (M83) using the Antu (Unit Telescope 1) 8.2 m telescope of the ESO Very Large Telescope with the Focal Reducer/Low Dispersion Spectrograph 1. Repeated imaging observations have been made between 2000 January and 2001 July. Images were obtained in 34 epochs in the V band and in six epochs in the I band. The photometry was made with the ROMAFOT reduction package and checked independently with DoPHOT and a modified version of HSTPHOT. Twelve Cepheid… 

The Discovery of Cepheids and a Distance to NGC 5128

We discuss a new distance to NGC 5128 (Centaurus A) based on Cepheid variables observed with the Hubble Space Telescope. Twelve F555W (V) and six F814W (I) epochs of cosmic-ray-split WFPC2

A NEW CEPHEID DISTANCE TO THE GIANT SPIRAL M101 BASED ON IMAGE SUBTRACTION OF HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE/ADVANCED CAMERA FOR SURVEYS OBSERVATIONS

We accurately determine a new Cepheid distance to M101 (NGC 5457) using archival Hubble Space Telescope (HST)/Advanced Camera for Surveys V and I time series photometry of two fields within the

A STUDY OF CEPHEIDS IN M81 WITH THE LARGE BINOCULAR TELESCOPE (EFFICIENTLY CALIBRATED WITH HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE)

We identify and phase a sample of 107 Cepheids with 10 days  <  P  <  100 days in M81 using the Large Binocular Telescope and calibrate their B, V, and I mean magnitudes with archival Hubble Space

Cepheid Variables in the Maser-Host Galaxy NGC 4258

We present results of a ground-based survey for Cepheid variables in NGC 4258. This galaxy plays a key role in the Extragalactic Distance Scale due to its very precise and accurate distance

Comparison of Distances from RR Lyrae Stars, the Tip of the Red Giant Branch, and Classical Cepheids

The extragalactic distance scale relies heavily on Cepheids. However, it has become clear from observations and pulsation models that the slope and zero point of their P-L relations differ from

The extragalactic Cepheid bias : significant influence on the cosmic distance scale

The unique measurements with the Hubble Space Telescope of Cepheid variable stars in nearby galaxies led to extragalactic distances that made the HST Key Project conclude that the Hubble constant is

Cepheid Calibrations from the Hubble Space Telescope of the Luminosity of Two Recent Type Ia Supernovae and a Redetermination of the Hubble Constant

We report observations of two nearby Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) for which observations of Cepheid variables in the host galaxies have been obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope: SN 1994ae in NGC

The extra-galactic Cepheid distance scale from LMC and Galactic period-luminosity relations

In this paper, we recalibrate the Cepheid distance to some nearby galaxies observed by the HST Key Project and the Sandage-Tammann-Saha group. We use much of the Key Project methodology in our

The Hubble Flow around the Centaurus A/M83 Galaxy Complex

We present Hubble Space Telescope ACS images and color-magnitude diagrams for 24 nearby galaxies in and near the constellation of Centaurus with radial velocities VLG < 550 km s-1. Distances are

REVISITING THE ABUNDANCE GRADIENT IN THE MASER HOST GALAXY NGC 4258
