In order to enhance fine structure in direct CCD images of galaxies, transform processing has been employed: working in the transform domain, transform functions have been created and simple high-  and low-pass filters have been applied to the images during the process. The results presented herein refer to a test sample of four galaxies:  ESO 143-G7,  HRG 54103, NGC 5193/5193A, and  NGC 5761. It is also discussed the use of a Fourier-hologram image as a transfer function.

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
