Photometric Properties of Karachentsev’s Mixed Pairs of Galaxies
We present multicolor broad band BVRI photometry for a sample of 42 mixed morphology binary galaxies taken from the “Karachentsev Catalogue of Isolated Pairs of Galaxies” (KPG). Images were obtained with 0.84m and 1.5m telescopes of the Observatorio Astronómico Nacional, San Pedro Mártir, Baja California, México, operated by the Instituto de Astronomía, UNAM. Our goal is to identify and isolate some structural and photometric properties of disk galaxies and elliptical galaxies at different stages of interaction.
