Context. The Hubble Ultra Deep field (HUDF) is the deepest region ever observed with the Hubble Space Telescope. With the main objective of unveiling the nature of galaxies up to z ∼ 7 − 8, the observing and reduction strategy have focused on the properties of small and unresolved objects, rather than the outskirts of the largest objects, which are usually over-subtracted. Aims. We aim to create a new set of WFC3 IR mosaics of the HUDF using novel techniques to preserve the properties of the… 
Structural analysis of massive galaxies using HST deep imaging at z < 0.5
Context. The most massive galaxies (Mstellar ≥ 1011 M⊙) in the local Universe are characterized by a bulge-dominated morphology and old stellar populations, in addition to being confined to a tight
Discovery of a possible splashback feature in the intracluster light of MACS J1149.5+2223
We present an analysis of the intracluster light (ICL) in the Frontier Field Cluster MACS J1149.5+2223 (z = 0.544), which combines new and archival Hubble WFC3/IR imaging to provide continuous
Properties of extragalactic thick discs recovered from ultra-deep Stripe82 imaging
Context. Thick discs can give invaluable information on the formation and evolution history of galaxies as most, if not all, disc galaxies have a thin (classical) disc and a thick disc. Aims. We
MCR-TRGB: A Multiwavelength-covariant, Robust Tip of the Red Giant Branch Measurement Method
We present a new method to measure colors and magnitudes of the tip of the red giant branch in multiple bandpasses simultaneously by fitting an n-dimensional Gaussian to photometry of candidate tip
Galactic cirri in deep optical imaging
The ubiquitous presence of Galactic cirri in deep optical images represents a major obstacle to study the low surface brightness features of extragalactic sources. To address this issue, we have
Intracluster light properties in a fossil cluster at z = 0.47
Galaxy clusters contain a diffuse stellar component outside the cluster’s galaxies, which is observed as faint intracluster light (ICL). Using Gemini/GMOS-N deep imaging and multiobject
Deep Realistic Extragalactic Model (DREaM) Galaxy Catalogs: Predictions for a Roman Ultra-deep Field
In the next decade, deep galaxy surveys from telescopes such as the James Webb Space Telescope and Roman Space Telescope will provide transformational data sets that will greatly enhance the
A diffuse tidal dwarf galaxy destined to fade out as a “dark galaxy”
We have explored the properties of a peculiar object detected in deep optical imaging and located at the tip of an H i tail emerging from Hickson Compact Group 16. Using multiband photometry from
The growth of intracluster light in XCS-HSC galaxy clusters from 0.1 < z < 0.5
We estimate the Intracluster Light (ICL) component within a sample of 18 clusters detected in XMM Cluster Survey (XCS) data using deep (∼ 26.8 mag) Hyper Suprime Cam Subaru Strategic Program DR1
A physically motivated definition for the size of galaxies in an era of ultradeep imaging
Present-day multi-wavelength deep imaging surveys allow to characterise the outskirts of galaxies with unprecedented precision. Taking advantage of this situation, we define a new physically
