Paper Abstract

Results concerning the U, B and V photometry of some galaxies in the cluster Zw 1305.4+ 2941 are presented. The cluster has a redshift of 0.24 and the photometry is referred to galaxies which are inside a region of radius 1.2 Mpc from the cluster center. To obtain these resutis an automated reduction procedure was applied to the microdensitometer data obtained scanning a region of Palomar 48" plates. These procedures include : a) a segmentation process, b) a smoothing, ca calibration of the plates using standard stars profiles and magnitudes, d) star-galaxy classification.
