Paper Abstract

I describe and compare several image enhancement techniques, useful for morphological analysis of galaxian (or cometary) images. Such techniques can be used to search for, and investigate the properties of dust lanes, stellar disks or rings, jets, shells, tidal distortions, etc. Applications of the techniques are illustrated on CCD images of the peculiar galaxy Arp 230; this object has a rich morphology, indicative of a merger of two disk galaxies.
