ACS photometry of extended, luminous globular clusters in the outskirts of M31

Abstract:

A new population of extended, luminous globular clusters has recently been discovered in the outskirts of M31. These objects have luminosities typical of classical globular clusters, but much larger half-light radii. We report the first results from deep ACS imaging of four such clusters, one of which is a newly discovered example lying at a projected distance of ∼60 kpc from M31. Our F606W, F814W color-magnitude diagrams extend ∼3 mag below the horizontal branch level, and clearly demonstrat...
