Faint extended structures near galaxies: preliminary results from the Wise Observatory

  • Noah Brosch (a1), Aleksandr Mosenkov (a2) and R. Michael Rich (a3)

Abstract

We present the first results from a survey of deep imaging of edge-on galaxies, with the goal of testing the growth-by-accretion of galaxies proposed by ΛCDM. The data were obtained with a new telescope at the Wise Observatory. Our images show previously unreported extensions of the disk, tidal distortions, and streams at the level of 27-28 mag arcsec−2.
