Paper Abstract

Digital image processing of spiral galaxies may be Performed for a variety of purposes: instrumental calibration and geometric correction, cosmetic processing, and analysis of specific scientific questions. This paper will discuss only the latter. The purpose is to illustrate a particular analysis procedure and to discuss the hardware and software required to facilitate the ever changing needs of the astronomer performing this type of investigation. The specific illustration is the analysis of stellar populations in M83 by use of UBV photographic images.
