Near Infrared H and surface photometry of the three nearby galaxies NGC 2366, NGC 2403 and NGC 4236, used as local calibrators of the Tully-Fisher relation, was obtained using the 2562 NICMOS3 IR array MAGIC attached to the telescope of Calar Alto. The present measurements are compared with the aperture photometry available in the literature. Surface brightness profiles and integrated magnitudes are given.
Key words: galaxies: photometry / galaxies: NGC 2366, NGC 2403, NGC 4236 / infrared: galaxies
based on observations taken at the Calar Alto Observatory, operated by the Max Planck Institut für Astronomie (Heidelberg) jointly with the Spanish National Commission for Astronomy.
